There’s some bad news for Texas A&M, as its next game, against Arkansas, is scheduled for an 11 a.m. local kickoff. And that game won’t be at home, it’ll be played at a neutral site, at AT&T Stadium.
The good news dfor Texas A&M is that it is 2-1 and they have never lost to Arkansas since they joined the SEC. The game will air on ESPN.
