Coach Dana X. Bible arrived at A&M from LSU and the move paid immediate dividends. A&M's offense proved formidable with M.H. "Ox" Ford at tackle, Heine Weir at quarterback and the dominant Jack Mahan and Roswell Higginbotham in the backfield. A&M opened up the year with a 40-0 blowout of Austin College. J.D. McMurrey scored and Jim Kindrick added two more touchdowns. The team then defeated Dallas University, Southwestern and LSU by a combined total of 170-0. J.W. Rollins threw for a touchdown and the team blew out Tulane the following week, then slipped by Baylor, 7-0. A fourth-quarter run from Higginbotham set up a score and was the difference in a 7-0 victory over Texas — the Aggies' fifth over the Longhorns in seven seasons. The Aggies capped the perfect season with a 10-0 win over undefeated Rice. A&M finished the year 8-0, outscored its opponents 270-0 and won the conference championship. According to The Fighting Texas Aggies by Gene Schoor, "Sportswriters called the team the greatest scoring machine in Southwest football history."
