Texas A&M football prepares for life without Johnny Manziel as the popular Quarterback has took his antics and party lifestyle to the NFL and the Cleveland Browns. Under Johnny football, Texas A&M compiled a 20-6 record running across SEC fields and scored over 50 points in six games alone in the 2013 season.
Heading into the 2014 Texas A&M football schedule the Aggies will try to continue the fun ride as they open the season on the road with a showdown against South Carolina on August 28. The first home game in the Texas A&M football schedule is scheduled for September 6 vs Lamar.
A few seasons ago the Aggies were just an ordinary football program playing in the Big 12 conference. Since leaving the Big 12 and being placed in a tough SEC conference in 2012, they have thrived due in large part to Johnny Manziel and established themselves as top contenders in a loaded conference. Texas A&M football tickets during this time were some of the most expensive in the country on the secondary market.
Last season, Texas A&M football tickets at Kyle Field had an average price of $184.92 in the secondary market. However Texas A&M football tickets for the 2014 Texas A&M football schedule at home have dropped 10% now that popular players like Mike Evans and Johnny Manziel have moved on to the NFL. Still, Texas A&M football tickets this season still rank in the top 10 of the top 25 most expensive ticket averages in the country.
While Texas A&M football tickets have decreased in average price this year, the Aggies are still expected to be a top contender this season in the SEC conference. The Aggies will look different this year from teams in years past as they have had key losses on offense but now the core guys on the offensive line have more experience under their belt as their 2013 season was a rather disappointment finishing with a 9-4 record due to many injuries and inexperience.
As for the Quarterback situation, three players will do battle in training camp for the team to gain a replacement nod from coach Sumlin. For the Aggies to have a more successful 2014 season, many of their players will have to play lights out as Texas A&M football schedule this season will be tough with their final 3 games against Auburn, Missouri, and LSU.
The most expensive game this year in the Texas A&M football schedule at Kyle Field will be their season finale against LSU with an over $300 average price. The cheapest game in the Texas A&M football schedule is on November 1 when they host the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.
While Texas A&M football is less exciting with ticket prices slightly decreasing because of the departure of Johnny Manziel, this college football program is still very formidable and still have some the most expensive college football tickets in the country and with the returning freshman coming back this season for the team and notable recruits in the offseason, this program should be a force in the very strong SEC conference.
