W.E. Bachman's second season was the first in which the forward pass was permitted. Felix Puckett was the captain of the squad, Victor Kelley was the quarterback and Louis Hamilton and Joe Utay the star running backs. A&M began the year 3-0 with two wins over TCU and one against Daniel Baker — all in shutout fashion. The team moved to 4-0 after defeating Tulane, 18-0. Hamilton scored a touchdown and kicked a 31-yard field goal in the road win. After a win over Haskell, A&M took on LSU in Baton Rouge. The Aggies stormed out to a 16-0 lead, but the Tigers answered to make it 16-12 in the fourth quarter. Kelley scampered 50 yards for a touchdown in a 22-12 A&M win. In the finale, A&M traveled to Austin to take on the Longhorns. UT ended A&M's perfect season with a 24-0 win. The Horns put the game away on a second-half touchdown pass from Winston McMahon to Bowie Duncan. The Aggies finished the season 6-1.
