Texas A&M basketball opponents released for 2024-2025: Aggies net loaded home slate

Texas A&M basketball is looking to have a huge season in 2024-2025. Only losing one major contributor from last year's squad, Buzz Williams will have his most talented team yet—of course, I said that all of this year, as well.

But as true as it was in 2023-2024, it will be even more so in this upcoming season. Retaining so many big time contributors—Wade Taylor, Andersson Garcia, Manny Obaseki, and others—as well as a few key transfer portal additions means that this year's basketball bunch could have a chance to make some big time moves.

The polls have recognized this potential, with the Aggies coming in within the top-15 of a way-too-early ranking already. The excitement is growing for next year's Texas A&M basketball team, without a doubt.

That excitement was only further stoked yesterday when the opponents were announced for next year's schedule. The dates have yet to be set in stone, but the Aggies now know which teams they will face at home and on the road for next season—and it's looking like Reed Arena will host several high-leverage matchups very soon.

The Aggies both host and visit LSU, Texas, and OU, while the other opponents they only play once each. A road trip to Rupp Arena will no doubt be tough, even without Calipari on the sidelines, but he will be patrolling the baselines at Reed Arena when Arkansas rolls into town.

Home games against Auburn, Alabama, and Tennessee will be huge. Florida and Texas are likely going to be the most difficult road trips, with Ole Miss being a dark horse there, depending on what Chris Beard can do down in Oxford.

This is a favorable slate for the Aggies, with no shortage of big time teams coming to College Station. Hopefully, Buzz will be running the table in conference without a dip like we saw this past season.
