Gators to travel to Texas in November, host Texas A&M in 2024 SEC opener

Florida will travel to Southeastern Conference newcomer Texas in November.

The SEC unveiled its complete schedule for the 2024 football season, which will include Texas and Oklahoma.

Under the new scheduling format, the SEC will do away with divisions and the top two teams in the regular-season standings will play for the conference championship in Atlanta.

For Florida, that means a change of scenery and some less-frequent opponents on the schedule.
