The Texas A&M Aggies have added games against ULM, Prairie View A&M, and Nicholls State to their future football schedules, FBSchedules.com has learned.
Texas A&M will host the ULM Warhawks at Kyle Field in College Station on Nov. 17, 2018. The Aggies will pay the Warhawks a $1.4 million guarantee for the game, according to a copy of the contract obtained from TAMU by FBSchedules.com.
The Aggies and the Warhawks have met three times on the gridiron, most recently last season in College Station. Texas A&M won all three meetings — 31-17 in 1985, 54-14 in 2007, and 21-16 in 2014.
ULM is a member of the Sun Belt Conference. Late last month, it was also learned that Texas A&M will host North Texas in 2017. The Aggies will pay the Mean Green $1.25 million for that contest.
Texas A&M has also tentatively completed their non-conference schedules in 2016 and 2017 with the addition of two FCS teams. The Aggies will host the Prairie View A&M Panthers on Sept. 10, 2016 and the Nicholls State Colonels on Sept. 9, 2017.
Prairie View A&M will receive a $450,000 guarantee for visiting Kyle Field, while Nicholls State will get $550,000, according to contracts for both games.
Texas A&M is scheduled to open the 2016 season at home against UCLA on Sept. 3. In addition to PVAMU, Texas A&M is set to host New Mexico State on Oct. 29 and UTSA on Nov 12.
The Aggies open the 2017 season with a trip to the Rose Bowl to face UCLA, the final game of a home-and-home series. Texas A&M opens their home slate with Nicholls State on Sept. 9, followed by UL Lafayette on Sept 16 and New Mexico on Nov. 11.
The addition of ULM gives Texas A&M two non-conference games in 2018. The Aggies are also scheduled to kick off a home-and-home series against Clemson that season in College Station on Sept. 8.
