Texas A&M reportedly is adding two nonconference opponents to its future schedules.
On Wednesday, FBSchedules.com’s Kevin Kelley reported that the Aggies will play Kent State on Sept. 4, 2021, and they’ll face New Mexico on Sept. 2, 2023. Both games reportedly will be played at Kyle Field.
Kelley reported that Texas A&M will pay Kent State a $1.9 million guarantee for the game. New Mexico will receive a $1.6 million guarantee, per Kelley.
The Aggies finished 7-6 last season, which was the program’s final year with Kevin Sumlin as coach. Texas A&M will enter its first season with former Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher leading the program in 2018. The Aggies’ 2017 campaign ended with a loss to Wake Forest in the Belk Bowl.
Texas A&M and Kent State never have met in football. The Aggies have a 4-0 record in their series against New Mexico, with Texas A&M winning the most recent game in 2017.
