Due to ongoing schedule fluctuations due to COVID-19 postponements, the SEC exercised the six-day window regarding TV networks and kickoff times for all Dec. 5 games. That schedule was released today, and Texas A&M will face Auburn at 11 a.m. on ESPN.

A&M will face the best opponent remaining on their schedule with a presumably large audience, as the game that comes on immediately after College Gameday. The game is rife with College Football Playoff implications, as will every game for A&M as long as they keep winning. The Aggies were No. 5 in the first Playoff rankings released last week, and maintained their No. 5 ranking in the AP Top 25 released today.
Following Auburn, they still need to make up postponed games against Ole Miss and at Tennessee. It is assumed these games will be played on Dec. 12 and Dec. 19, but exact details have yet to be determined.
