Possible changes to 2025 Texas A&M football schedule

Now, that's what has been confirmed for the moment. As things stand, though, there could be some significant change coming down the pike.

As I mentioned before, there is one team that has been unofficially confirmed for next year: the Texas Longhorns. I think that we all thought, once the Horns joined the conference, that this was a shoo-in for a yearly matchup.

However, that became significantly tougher to envision after last year's SEC spring football meetings. At that meeting, the coaches present voted to keep the conference schedule to only 8 games with a 1-7 format: one permanent opponent and seven rotating ones.

The obvious problem is that such an arrangement forces the Longhorns to choose between the Aggies and Sooners, and the Aggies to choose between the Longhorns and LSU. Arkansas is another team that would be a natural rival for both programs, but, under this model, could not be a yearly matchup for either.

However, the Texas Athletic Department recently said that the A&M game would be yearly. While unofficial, this likely heralds a move, as many have anticipated for some time now, to a 9-game conference slate and a 3-6 model: three permanent opponents and six rotating ones.

This model lets the Aggies play both the Horns and LSU next year. Similarly, it allows the Longhorns to play A&M and Oklahoma. The rumor

If such an arrangement does occur, however, the Aggies would have to nix one of these four games that I've just mentioned. For both overall entertainment and scheduling reasons, Tarleton seems to be the obvious choice. That's a guaranteed win off of the schedule, but it likely signals more money in ticket sales.

Since both the current 1-7 model and the prospective 3-6 model mean that a given team will play all other conference teams in a two-year span, we can then predict which SEC matchups the Aggies will face in 2025. Let's take a look at that.
