The news could be significant for Texas A&M on the field.
The Aggies will now open their season against Florida on Sept. 8. That means Texas A&M, which will begin the season with a redshirt freshman quarterback, will enter SEC play without facing a non-conference test. Florida will host Bowling Green on Saturday.
Texas A&M will also lose its mid-season bye week. The Aggies were scheduled to be off the weekend of Oct. 13 before hosting LSU on Oct. 20.
