Rankings from AP Poll

The 2005 Texas A&M Aggies football team completed the season with a 5-6 record. The Aggies had a regular season Big 12 record of 3-5.

Season[edit]

Despite being ranked #17 in preseason polls, the 2005 Aggie defense ranked 107th nationally (out of 119 Division I NCAA teams) and allowed 443.8 yards per game. This prompted head coach Dennis Franchione to dismiss defensive coordinator Carl Torbush. Franchione then hired former Western Michigan head coach Gary Darnell to replace Torbush.[1]
