The Texas A&M Aggies SEC future just became a little more clear - in baseball at least.

The Texas A&M Aggies are set to reunite with the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners when the two programs join the SEC in 2024.

And since the announcement of that landscape-changing shift, the focus has been on how the conference will handle its football scheduling.

Nearly as important in SEC Country, however, is the format of the baseball schedule .

Luckily for baseball fans , Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball revealed exactly what that will look like on Tuesday morning.

According to Rogers, the SEC will move to a regular season format that has two series each season against permanent opponents and eight series against rotating opponents for a total of 30 conference games. To join that, the SEC will depart from its current "East and West" division model in favor of a single division.

How will this affect the Aggies? One would assume that Texas A&M would have a permanent matchup against LSU, given that the Tigers have been the Aggies' defacto rival in the conference over the last decade and change.

But who will the other team be? Well to us, it seems pretty obvious.

The Longhorns.

The Longhorns and the Aggies are destined to reignite their passionate rivalry one way or another.

And whether the Longhorns like it or not, Texas A&M is surely going to be a fixture in their future athletic scheduling.
