As has been pointed out by every other media outlets, the Aggies will play each of the top three teams and four teams in the top six. But first comes a battle with the Texas State Bobcats to open the season on Thursday, Aug. 29. The Bobcats began last season by losing to Rutgers by four touchdowns, giving the Scarlet Knights their only victory of the season. That’s completely irrelevant to this story, I just like to point it out as often as I can.
