Texas A&M football is lucky to end up with one of the more relaxed slates in the conference this upcoming year.

SEC 2024 Schedules: 16th Toughest - Mizzou

The Tigers do play at Alabama, which projects as a clear loss right now. A road game at Texas A&M is probably their toughest contest otherwise; they host Auburn and Oklahoma for their other two hardest games, but they should be evenly matched in those given how well coach Drinkwitz has been recruiting.

That said, Missouri has a non-conference slate which likely ranks as the easiest in the whole SEC. There's the oddity of a road game at UMass, but other than that, the Tigers host Murray State, Buffalo, and Boston College to begin the year. Not only that, but they follow up this grueling slate with a game against Vanderbilt, also at home—an essentially guaranteed conference win. Then they have a bye week preceding a trip down to College Station for their first real contest of the year.

After road trips to College Station and Massachussets, the Tigers go home/road against Auburn/Alabama, which is by far their toughest stretch. Then they have their second bye (each team gets two this year), which precedes their big home game against Oklahoma.

That's their last tough game of the season, though, as they close the year at South Carolina and Mississippi State before returning home to host Arkansas. It's tough to win back-to-back conference games on the road in the SEC, but neither of these foes are real juggernauts.
