The SEC released the schedule for the 2024 season on June 14th, and Texas A&M football emerged a winner from it.
In the first season in the new SEC, the Aggies get a fantastic slate for the 2024 season, playing their biggest games of the season in Notre Dame, LSU, and Texas at home. This schedule is a benefit of Ross Bjork’s effort’s ever since Texas and Oklahoma were asked to join in 2021. Bjork has been fighting for the first lone star showdown to be played at Kyle Field since June 2nd of 2022, and it became official on June 14th. Texas A&M football also plays Missouri, Bowling Green, New Mexico State, and McNeese at home
The Aggies also receive a great slate of away games, with teams that have the potential to be good by the time 2024 comes around, but nowhere near the levels of Georgia and Alabama that have plagued their schedules since they have joined the SEC. Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Arkansas (which will still be played in Arlington) make up the rest of the schedule.
This schedule could not have come at a better time for Texas A&M football. In 2022, Jimbo Fisher hauled in the highest rated recruiting class of all time, and by the time the 2024 season rolls around, they will have junior level experience. While some of the players from the historic class entered the transfer portal this offseason, the team retains around 80% of their production as a team from the previous year. This would be huge for the Aggies as the class is hitting the peak of their college play, right around the time where a schedule allows a great chance to have a 10+ win season.
Overall, Texas A&M football fans should be excited for the 2024 season, fit with a strong home slate, and solid in conference line up. All eyes now turn to Jimbo Fisher and the 2023 season, to see if he can pick up some steam to make some noise in 2024.
