The Aggies play a unique schedule, even against CUSA standards. First up is a winnable game against FCS SE Missouri State before defending CUSA Champs Liberty come to town.
After that, it’s consecutive road trips against Fresno State and Sam Houston before their annual rivalry matchup with New Mexico. Midweek CUSA play begins with a tough one against Jacksonville State but seemingly levels out with games against Louisiana Tech and FIU over the next three weeks.
Though NMST spoiled the fun for an SEC foe last season, that kind of success may not repeat itself with a game at Texas A&M on November 16, especially considering they’ll head into that game following a tough game against WKU just prior.
Winnable contests against Middle Tennessee and UTEP close out their season in 2024, a year that looks difficult to repeat a 10-win outing from a year ago.
The 20th annual Conference USA Championship Game will feature the top two finishers in conference play and is set to be played on Friday, December 6. CBS Sports Network will broadcast the CUSA Championship Game.
