The Texas A&M football team will play one of the toughest schedules in the nation in 2014. The Aggies will play two bowl teams in non-conference play in addition to the gauntlet that makes up the typical SEC schedule.
The Aggies return six starters on offense and eight starters on defense. They will be a young team in 2014, but they will have more game-tested depth than they did in 2013.
Head coach Kevin Sumlin and his coaches have done a good job of turning the Aggies roster over with young talent that is physically more prepared to compete in the SEC. This should be the first year when Sumlin's recruits make a major impact on the field.
The Aggies will match up well with some of their opponents, but they will still find themselves lacking in personnel when it comes to facing off against the elite teams. This is a look at how the Aggies' 2014 schedule ranks from the easiest games to the toughest.
When looking at how tough an opponents is, the location of the game, the time of the season, the system the team runs and the returning starters the team has will be taken into account.
