The Texas A&M football team will face one of the toughest schedules in the nation in 2014. The Aggies will play the type of schedule required to find a place among the top four teams in the College Football Playoff.
The 2014 schedule contains eight teams that went to bowls in 2013 and three teams that ended the year ranked in the top five. This schedule will present a great challenge for a team that lost one of the best college football players in recent memory, Johnny Manziel.
The Southeastern Conference is always going to be tough, and A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has been adding depth and talent to the roster during the past two years in an attempt to prepare for the conference grind. Sumlin and his staff have reeled in consecutive top-10 recruiting classes.
The Aggies will again be a young team in 2014, but for the first time under Sumlin, they should have legitimate depth on the defensive side of the ball to make it through an SEC season. This is a look at the toughest teams the Aggies will face in 2014.
