The New Mexico State Aggies will play at the Minnesota Golden Gophers in 2018 and 2020, FBSchedules.com has learned via a records request to NMSU.
New Mexico State and Minnesota initially signed a contract to play in 2011 and 2016 and then another contract to play in 2013 and 2018. The two ended up meeting in 2011 in Minneapolis, a 28-21 win for the Aggies, and in 2013 in Las Cruces, a 44-21 win for the Gophers.
The 2016 game will not be played, so now they are left with games in 2018 and 2020.
New Mexico State will now travel to take on Minnesota at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018 and then again two seasons later on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020.
The Aggies have also made a change to their 2016 football schedule. New Mexico State was previously scheduled to play at San Diego State on Sept. 24, 2016, but the two schools have agreed to move the game to Sept. 4, 2021.
The postponement of the game at SDSU leaves New Mexico State with three non-conference games for the 2016 season. The Aggies are also scheduled to host New Mexico on Sept. 10 and visit Texas A&M on Oct. 29.
