Tulane defeated the Aggies, 7-0, a week later. The team split its next two games — beating Iowa and falling to TCU. After a four-year lapse in the A&M-Baylor series, due to a cadet's death in a brawl during the '26 game, the Bears returned to Kyle Field. A&M dominated Baylor, 33-7. A&M defeated Centenary a week later to move to 4-1. A strong SMU team shut the Aggies out, 8-0, at Kyle Field the following week. Fullback James Aston scored in a 7-0 win over Rice to move the team to 6-3. Aston got injured in the season finale against Texas, but the A&M defense took over in a 7-6 win to end the season. It was the Aggies' 12th win over the Longhorns. A&M finished 7-3 and third in the conference.
