Hopefully this will be only a temporary setback. You can contact us at if you wish to inquire about any prospects of reinstatements for the upcoming holidays. You will receive a prompt and personal reply. We thank you for your patience, and more than share your frustration.

It took Coach Homer Norton six years to recover the Aggies' program from the depths, but the 1939 team made the wait worthwhile, and it remains the most successful team in A&M history: An 11-0-0 record, six shutouts, including one over Texas on Thanksgiving Day, and a win over undefeated Tulane in the Sugar Bowl---which if you might note is Tulane's home field. All of this was enough to convince the pollsters to vote the Aggies the top team in the land, and for the late H.L. Hunt to consider offering each Aggie player an oilfield of his own as a token of his esteem. His accountants and his children talked him out of that one, but the offer lives on in the annals of Texas mythology.
