Future Texas A&M Football Schedules

New, 38 comments

Texas A&M has been quickly filling out future opponents for the football team. Here is an easy guide to Aggie Football schedules for 2015, 2016, and beyond.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday, the Texas A&M Athletic Department announced they have scheduled a non-conference football contest against the University of Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns for September 16th, 2017. Yes, 2017. Prepare your tailgate parties accordingly.

While some will roll their eyes at Texas A&M scheduling another no-name school, this is actually a nice opponent. The Ragin' Cajuns are 27-12 in three years under head coach Mark Hudspeth (who can do 25 reps of 225 pounds on bench press), including three bowl game victories and one Sun Belt championship. ULL is also picked to win the Sun Belt again this coming year. This is a quality program. With an increased recruiting presence in the state of Louisiana, it's also not a bad idea to schedule a smaller Louisiana school whose roster consists of players who were high school teammates of current Aggie players. Players enjoy going up against some of the same guys they played with or against in high school, making ULL a better choice than teams like Idaho or Western Carolina.

Now let's get a glimpse of what's in store for Aggie Football in the upcoming years.

2015 Football Schedule

Non-conference Opponents

Date Opponent
Sept 5 Arizona State (NRG Stadium, Houston)
Sept 12 Ball State
Sept 19 Nevada
Nov 14 Western Carolina

SEC Opponents

Home/Away Opponent
Home South Carolina
Away Vanderbilt
Home Alabama
Home Auburn
Home Mississippi State
Away Ole Miss
Away LSU
Neutral Arkansas

The 2015 schedule is pretty much set up. All we lack are the specific dates for the SEC conference games.  By getting Vanderbilt from the East and South Carolina, Alabama, and Auburn at home, this looks to be a great year for Texas A&M as the younger, talented players on the roster now become upperclassmen.  I am, however, still disappointed we open Kyle Field with Ball State.

2016 Football Schedule

Non-conference Opponents

Date Opponent
Sept 3 UCLA
Sept 10 Louisiana Tech*


Nov 12 UTSA*

*Note: Opponent is not listed on Aggie Athletics Football Schedule

SEC Opponents

Home/Away Opponent
Away South Carolina
Home Tennessee
Away Alabama
Away Auburn
Away Mississippi State
Home Ole Miss
Home LSU
Neutral Arkansas

UCLA, Tennessee, LSU, and Ole Miss at home save the schedule. Both UCLA and Tennessee home games should be memorable, as it will be more than a decade before either are seen at Kyle Field again.

2017 Football Schedule

Non-conference Opponents

Date Opponent
Sept 2 @ UCLA
Sept 16 Louisiana Lafayette


Nov 11 New Mexico*

*Note: Opponent is not listed on Aggie Athletics Football Schedule

SEC Opponents

Home/Away Opponent
Home South Carolina
Away Florida
Home Alabama
Home Auburn
Home Mississippi State
Away Ole Miss
Away LSU
Neutral Arkansas

We can never predict how good teams will be this far in advance, but a South Carolina - Florida combo from the East, plus a trip out to UCLA, makes this a very difficult schedule.

2018 Football Schedule

Non-conference Opponents

Date Opponent


Sept 19 @ Oregon




SEC Opponents

Home/Away Opponent
Away South Carolina
Home Kentucky
Away Alabama
Away Auburn
Away Mississippi State
Home Ole Miss
Home LSU
Neutral Arkansas

Texas A&M is still scheduled to visit Oregon in 2018, and get an assist with Kentucky visiting Kyle Field.  This is the year we know the least about in terms of upcoming opponents.

2019 Football Schedule

Non-conference Opponents

Date Opponent


Sept 14 Oregon
TBA Rice (NRG Stadium, Houston)
Nov 2 UTSA

SEC Opponents

Home/Away Opponent
Home South Carolina
Away Georgia
Home Alabama
Home Auburn
Home Mississippi State
Away Ole Miss
Away LSU
Neutral Arkansas

Oregon is scheduled to make the return trip to Kyle Field in 2019.  An oddity is the away game at NRG Stadium in Houston against Rice.  That would give the Aggies two neutral site games in the same season, similar to what will occur in 2015.  I'm not a fan of that idea.  Let's try to keep it to one neutral site game a season, which is currently being held by Arkansas.  Of course this far out, the Rice game may never be played.
