The Aggies transition into the SEC won't likely be a smooth one, but who cares about that? Texas A&M has broken out of the shadows of the rivalry with Texas and stands alone as the state's representative in what is largely considered the strongest conference in college football.
Our colleagues over a SB Nation Studios previewed the SEC season. There are obviously a lot of interesting storylines to consider, like LSU and Alabama re-tooling from their championship teams and Arkansas moving past the Bobby Petrino era. But the Aggies in their first year of action is going to be a treat for A&M and local fans in general.
Here is a list of big names in the conference for you to look out for:
DE Sam Montgomery - LSU, Junior
CB Tyrann Mathieu - LSU, Junior
QB Tyler Wilson - Arkansas, Senior
DE Jadeveon Clowney - South Carolina, Sophomore
RB Marcus Lattimore - South Carolina, Junior
