The Aggies will begin life in the SEC by hosting Florida, and replaces Texas with fellow Big 12 ex-pat Missouri on Thanksgiving Week.

The SEC announced its entire 2012 football schedule today, including Texas A&M's first-ever conference slate as a new member. The Aggies will begin play as a member of the SEC Western Division, and will begin a "rivalry" with fellow Big 12 expat Missouri, who joins the SEC East, as cross-division rivals. The game will replace the Aggies' traditional rivalry game with Texas on Thanksgiving week.

In the SEC West, Texas A&M will host LSU, retain its neutral site game against Arkansas at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington and travel to Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama. In addition to the Tigers, Missouri will draw Florida from the East, who will officially open SEC play in College Station on September 8:

Sept. 8: FLORIDA

Sept. 29: vs. Arkansas

Oct. 6: at Ole Miss

Oct. 20: LSU

Oct. 27: at Auburn

Nov. 3: at Mississippi State

Nov. 10: at Alabama

Nov. 24: MISSOURI
