Texas A&M will host the Bobcats to open the 2019 season

NCAA Football: Southern Mississippi at Texas State Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Texas A&M has added a new non-conference football opponent to their 2019 schedule, according to FBSschedules.com, as the Texas State Bobcats will visit College Station to open the season on Aug. 31, 2019. Texas State will reportedly receive $1.3 million for the honor of playing Texas A&M.

The Aggies and Bobcats last faced each other in 2005, when the threat of Hurricane Rita making landfall forced the game to be moved from Saturday to Thursday night.

Before you complain about another cupcake non-conference opponent, A&M will travel to Death Valley the very next week to take on Clemson in the second year of a home-and-home series with the Tigers. Take a look at the Aggies’ future non-conference opponents as they currently stand:
