The 2013 USA Today Coaches Poll has been released and the Texas A&M football team is ranked No. 6. It is now up to the Aggies' sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel to help them exceed this preseason rank and lead them to their first national title since 1939.
The No. 6 ranking is the highest the Ags have been ranked to enter the season since 1995 when they entered the year at No. 3. That Aggie team traveled to Boulder and lost a top ten matchup to No. 7 Colorado 29-21.
The Ags were ranked in the top 10 entering the 2011 season only to struggle to a 7-6 finish during their last year in the Big 12. Whether or not the Aggies are able to capitalize on their lofty 2013 preseason rank will depend on the play of Manziel and his teammates.
The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner is tasked with leading the A&M program where it has not been in decades. This is a look at how Manziel can lead A&M to the BCS title.
