Details on the 2020 season seem to continually evolve, and let’s be honest, they’re probably not done doing so. But every litter decision that gets made means we’re that much closer to actual football potentially getting played, and we got some big ones today. Earlier today the SEC announced it’s Week 1 slate of games (we play Vandy), and this evening they released the full 10-game conference schedules for each team. You can review the schedule for all 14 teams here, and Texas A&M’s updated schedule is below.

We’ve known for almost two weeks who the Aggies’ opponents would be, but what we did not know was when the games would be played. One of the major talking points revolved around whether the SEC would keep the original order of conference games the same and simply add the two additional conference opponents onto the end of the schedule. While that seemed like the simplest solution, the SEC obviously went with a pretty major shakeup, which may have played a part in why it took so long for this schedule to be released.
Overall this seems like a balanced schedule. Vandy is a nice warmup before traveling to Bama and hosting Florida. A somewhat easier middle portion of the schedule (including a Week 5 bye) before finishing with LSU and Auburn. It’ll be a gauntlet, but that’s true for everyone this year. If it happens, it should be a blast!
