We’ve known for quite a while who Texas A&M’s 2020 football opponents would be, but on Wednesday, the SEC released the dates for each game for teams across the conference.

The biggest development is that A&M will no longer have a November non-conference game. The Aggies start the year with three non-conference home games against Abliene Christian, North Texas and Colorado, and wrap up the non-conference slate with a game against Fresno State on Oct. 10. Also notable is that A&M does not have an SEC home game until November, where they host Ole Miss (Nov. 7), Vanderbilt (Nov. 14) and LSU (Nov. 28), with a trip to Tuscaloosa mixed in on Nov. 21.

After facing an absolute gauntlet of a schedule in 2019 (four of the top six teams in the preseason Coaches Poll), A&M gets some relief in 2020, subbing out a road game against Clemson for a home game against Colorado, and a trip to Georgia for a home game against Vanderbilt. It’s a primary reason why man (myself included) see 2020 as the year A&M may truly start competing for conference and national titles.
