Welcome to the SEC, Aggies!!
With every team in the nation's toughest football conference gunning to teach the Ags a lesson, the newly released 2012 schedule shows a rough road for A&M: Alabama and Auburn on the road, for starters.
The Ags will also face LSU, meaning they will play both teams in this year's BCS title game. The Tigers come to College Station, but still, we imagine their fans will travel well to Kyle Field.
Here's the SEC portion of the Aggies' schedule, with the home games in caps:
Sept. 8: FLORIDA Sept. 29: vs. Arkansas (Site to be decided; tentatively set for Cowboys Stadium) Oct. 6: at Ole Miss Oct. 20: LSU Oct. 27: at Auburn Nov. 3: at Mississippi State Nov. 10: at Alabama Nov. 24: MISSOURI
Lots of luck with that, fellas.
