Coach Matty Bell was in his second season and trying to build on a 5-4 campaign after replacing the legendary Dana X. Bible, who had left College Station to take over at Nebraska. Harry Stiteler, who was a track standout, tried out for the team during his senior season and became the quarterback. The Aggies dominated Southwestern in the season's first game. However, in a highly anticipated matchup, the team fell to Bible and Nebraska in Lincoln, 13-0. In the game, the Aggies pulled within 3 yards of the Nebraska end zone at the end of the half, failing in two attempts to score before the break. The Cornhuskers punched in a third quarter touchdown, and pulled the starters out of the game after another touchdown in the fourth. A&M lost its next three games, scoring only 9 combined points in the losses. A&M got back on the right side by defeating Centenary, 7-6. A&M couldn't build on the win, falling narrowly to SMU the next week. The season ended with the offense sputtering. The Aggies were shut out by Rice. And Texas ended A&M's season with a 26-0 victory. UT's Dexter Shelley had a touchdown pass and run. A&M finished the year 2-7.
