2017 Texas A&M-UCLA football game moved to Sunday, September 3

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2017 Texas A&M at UCLA football game has been moved to Sunday, Sept. 3, the two schools announced on Wednesday.

The game, previously scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 2, will be nationally televised at either 7:30 or 8:00pm ET from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Texas A&M and UCLA have met five times on the gridiron. The Aggies beat the Bruins 31-24 in overtime last season in College Station to take a 3-2 lead in the overall series.

The date change means each team will have a short week prior to their next contest on September 9. That Saturday, Texas A&M is scheduled to host Nicholls State while UCLA is slated to host Hawaii.

Both will have short weeks, but with both having Week 2 breathers against admittedly lesser competition, it makes it easier to agree to the Sunday night game.

Georgia Tech and Tennessee likewise both face FCS schools the Saturday after their Labor Day Monday night game.

I can see these games being moved due to how big they’re, Labor Day week end is huge. Normally starts on Thursday night -Monday night. Lots of great h/n/h & neutral site games to be played.
