It is pretty much the same teams at the top every year. The only one that has really joined them in my lifetime is The U, which has since fallen back into being average.
You get the occasional team that wins a National Title thanks to a freakish player (Cam with Auburn is the latest example)
A&M probably has the same ceiling the Oregon does. Great offense and a chance to be in the hunt every year, but probably not enough to make it over the top.
If Manziel stayed around and became A&M's Tim Tebow, they may have a shot a gaining ground.
