The Texas A&M Aggies have added the UL Lafayette Ragin Cajuns to their 2017 football schedule, the school announced in a release today.
Texas A&M will host UL Lafayette at Kyle Field in College Station on Sept. 16, 2017. It will be the seventh overall meeting between the two schools.
The Aggies have won five of the six previous matchups with the Cajuns with the only loss coming in Lafayette in 1996 (29-22). In their last meeting in 2006, Texas A&M crushed UL Lafayette 51-7.
“We open the 2017 season on the road in Pasadena, California, against UCLA (Sept. 2) and look forward to a great non-conference matchup against the University of Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns on Sept. 16 here at Kyle Field,” Aggie Director of Athletics Eric Hyman said.
In addition to opening at UCLA and adding UL Lafayette, New Mexico is scheduled to visit College Station on Oct. 11. The Aggies now only need one additional non-conference game to fill out their 2017 slate.
UL Lafayette now has two non-conference games scheduled for the 2017 season. A week prior to playing at Kyle Field, the Cajuns visit Tulsa to take on the Golden Hurricane.
