Top Games of the Texas A&M 2014 Schedule
Texas A&M has done better than expected since its move to the Southeastern Conference. A win over #1 Alabama in 2012 and a beating down of Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl have been the highlights of the Aggies time of the SEC, and it’s only going to get harder. While A&M is pulling some top recruits, so are schools like Alabama, LSU and Florida year after year. Add in that this will be the school’s first season without Johnny Manziel at the helm, and the odds are stacked against the Aggies. Tickets will be in-demand for A&M games no matter what with their huge, loyal fan base. Let’s check out some of the biggest games of the season and what the prices are at this point before the season.
Texas A&M vs. Lamar, September 6, 6:30 PM (College Station, TX)
The Aggies start the season at Kyle Field against the Lamar Cardinals, which shouldn’t be too tough a game. Texas A&M should cruise, winning by 30+ against a team that went 2-5 in Southland Conference play in 2013. Even so, it’s a season opener in College Station and it’s a pretty cheap ticket. $31 gets you into the stadium, while $42 can get you a seat at field level. Not too bad for one of the most talked-about team in the country the last two years.
Texas A&M vs. Arkansas, September 27 (Arlington, TX)
This isn’t a home game, but it might as well be. Arkansas isn’t too far away from the Metroplex, but Dallas is filled with Aggies. A&M will be represented in a big way in the stands, and watching a game at AT&T Stadium is always an experience for those that haven’t been. Arkansas was absolutely dreadful last season, going 0-8 in SEC play after starting the season with three non-conference wins against fluff opponents. Another game A&M should win, but as we all know, anything can happen. Tickets for the Southwest Classic start at $111, but a lower level ticket will cost about $300.
Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss, October 11 (College Station, TX)
This one is poised to be a close one, with the team looking pretty even after the departure of Manziel. The Aggie defense hasn’t been very good, and senior Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace could be one of the best in the country in 2014. The Aggies beat Ole Miss in a crazy come-from-behind game last year in Oxford, and we expect another game of that caliber. For this one, $78 will get you in the door, and about $120 is good enough for field level.
Texas A&M vs. LSU, November 27 (College Station, TX)
The last game of the season is the hardest and most anticipated, when the Bayou Bengals come to East Texas for a showdown. LSU is always a contender for a national championship, and this year they are being picked by many to be in the upcoming College Football Playoff. The tickets for this one are in demand, so we’re looking at $143 to get in, or $200 for lower level. It’s still not too pricey for a great college football matchup.
