The New Mexico State Aggies have added a home game against the South Carolina State Bulldogs to complete their 2021 football schedule.

New Mexico State, an FBS Independent, opens the 2021 season in Week Zero on Saturday, Aug. 28 at home at Aggie Memorial Stadium in Las Cruces, N.M., against the UTEP Miners. The Aggies then travel for back-to-back contests at San Diego State on Sept. 4 and at New Mexico on Sept. 11.

Next up for the Aggies are consecutive home contests against South Carolina State on Sept. 18 and Hawaii on Sept. 25. The Aggies then travel for two more road games at San Jose State on Oct. 2 and at Nevada on Oct. 9.

New Mexico State returns the trip to take on Hawaii in Honolulu on Oct. 23, which is sandwiched in between open dates on Oct. 16 and Oct. 30.

The Aggies open their November slate on the 6th at home against Utah State before traveling for back-to-back road contests at Alabama (Nov. 13) and Kentucky (Nov. 20) of the SEC.

The Aggies close out the 2021 regular-season at home against the UMass Minutemen on Nov. 27.
