Texas A&M Aggies
Someone always has to be first and for the Texas A&M Aggies, the first SEC opponent they will face will be the Florida Gators on Saturday. It will mark the debut of the Aggies in the SEC against one of the most successful teams in the league.
New Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill knows he has the weight of a franchise hanging on his right shoulder. But, the former Texas A&M Aggie has no idea when he’ll be taking the starting snaps for Miami.
Athletic directors from the Southeastern Conference have come together in Birmingham to put together a plan to assimilate Texas A&M into the league. But the meeting is also being held against the backdrop of possibly more conference expansion.
It’s not quite Florida versus Florida State; but the Florida Gators will likely be traveling to College Station once every few years to take on the Texas A&M Aggies.
The Florida Gators are very close to gaining a new rival in the Southeastern Conference. Texas A&M University is set to inform the BIG XII Conference Tuesday that it is leaving for the Southeastern Conference.
After a week of lots of speculation, the Southeastern Conference announced Sunday evening that it was happy with the current 12-team alignment. But, the SEC also left the door wide-open to expanding at any time.
