Something special is brewing in College Station.
On Monday, Jimbo Fisher led Texas A&M to their first bowl win since 2014. No. 19 Aggies earned a 52-13 win over North Carolina State in the Gator Bowl in a comprehensive performance. The team is ending the year on a hot streak, and you get the sense that Jimbo is well on his way to taking them to uncommon heights.

They are on the move and will become another SEC powerhouse at the Clemson-Alabama level. BC— BobCarter (@BobCarter385761) January 1, 2019
A&M looked dominant in their lopsided victory. They established the running game early on and won the battle in the trenches, which allowed them to open things up and truly dictate terms the rest of the way.
Just a year ago, Fisher signed a flabbergasting 10-year $75 million contract with the Aggies. But the momentum this program will now carry into spring ball after finishing the campaign with a ninth victory shows Jimbo is worth every penny.
The Aggie players are buying into Jimbo's system, too.
"Coach Fisher came in from day one and set the foundation," A&M junior tight end Jace Sternberger said. "That's what happens when you have a good group of guys who are open to listening. When you buy in, you actually see results."
Texas A&M fans have as much reason as ever to be hopeful for the future. The bowl win marks the first nine-win season the Aggies have had since a guy named Johnny Manziel was slinging the football at quarterback.
Remember, Aggie fans: in Jimbo we trust.
