Texas A&M to play Arkansas State, UTSA in 2025

Aggies renew rivalry following bitter 2008 defeat

We informed you yesterday that Texas A&M would face FCS program Abilene Christian in 2023 and 2028. But don’t worry, stiffer competition is also on the horizon, as the Aggies’ 2025 schedule now also boasts home games with...Arkansas State and UT San Antonio. A&M will open the season against the Roadrunners on Aug. 30 and then host the Red Wolves on Sept. 6.

It’s good to see A&M finally showing some cojones in their non-conference scheduling. Not only are both of these FBS programs, but A&M will also look to avenge their dreadful 2008 loss to Arkansas State in the first game of the Mike Sherman era. It was the last time the Aggies lost to a non-Power 5 team, and was the last time Arkansas State beat a Power 5 team until Kansas State lifted that curse earlier this season.

In A&M’s defense, they do travel to Notre Dame the week after these two games, so the 2025 non-conference schedule isn’t completely without merit. But after the 2020 season in which we got 10 (hopefully 10) games all against Power 5 competition, going back to having three guaranteed uninteresting blowouts is a bit of a letdown. But at least we have the roadtrip to South Bend to look forward to.
