NCAA Football: Texas Bowl-Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Fall camp was originally scheduled to begin Friday, Aug. 7, but that has changed due to a revised calendar published by the SEC. Texas A&M announced their official 2020 preseason schedule today.

  • August 7-16: Up to 14 hours of strength and conditioning, meetings, and walkthroughs
  • August 17: First allowable practice
  • August 17-Opening game: Up to 20 hours per week of practice time; 25 practices allowed (requires 5-day acclimatization period, with 2 days in helmets only, two days in shells, and the fifth day in full pads; minimum of 2 days off per week for student-athletes)
  • September 26: Opening game

The new SEC calendar - developed based on recommendations of the SEC’s Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force - provides student-athletes with more days off than required by the NCAA and fewer practices than permitted by current NCAA rules.
