The Texas A&M Aggies have added the South Carolina State Bulldogs to their 2012 football schedule, TheTandD.com has reported.
Texas A&M will host South Carolina State at Kyle Field in College Station on Sept. 22, 2012. The game will be the first ever between the two schools.
The Aggies, who will play their first season in the SEC in 2012, need one more non-conference game to complete their 2012 football schedule. TAMU opens the season on Sept. 1 against McNeese State and also travels to face SMU on Sept. 15.
Not only will Texas A&M be playing in a new conference, they will have a new head coach as well. Kevin Sumlin took over for fired head coach Mike Sherman, who coached the Aggies to a 25-25 overall record since 2008.
Sumlin was previously the head coach at Houston and led the Cougars to a 35-17 overall record, including 12-1 in 2011 with a TicketCity Bowl victory over Penn State.
