Texas A&M University and the University of Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns announced today a non-conference football game scheduled for Sept. 16, 2017 in College Station at newly redeveloped Kyle Field.
“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.
