1933 team

The 1933 Aggies went 6-3-1 under coach Matty Bell.

Matty Bell's coaching was in question to start the season. The year prior, Dean E.J. Kyle killed rumors of Bell's impending firing, but such talk persisted. Fullback James Aston graduated after the 1932 season, but A&M still had the talents of back Frenchy Dominique. A&M got off to a 4-0 start — all of which were double-digit victories. The team's 13-6 win over Tulane was the first time the Green Wave had been beaten in a season opener since 1921. Bell informed the team and student body at Yell Practice before the fifth game that he would be resigning after the season. A&M fell to TCU, 13-7, the next day. Against Baylor, Bill Couser threw for a touchdown and the Aggies prevailed, 14-7. Centenary bottled up running back Odell Fowler and shut out the Aggies, 20-0. The following week, Robert Wilson scored a touchdown in a 19-0 Mustangs victory. A&M shut out Rice and tied Texas in Bell's final game to finish the season 6-3-1 and fourth in the conference. Bell's tenure ended after five seasons and a 24-21-3 record. For its next coach, A&M looked toward Centenary (La.), where Homer Norton had led the Gentlemen to two consecutive undefeated seasons.
