The Texas A&M Aggies have added the Texas State Bobcats to their 2027 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the football game agreement with Texas A&M University was obtained from Texas State University via a state of Texas Public Information Act request. The contract was executed on Sept. 10, 2021.
Texas A&M will host Texas State at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2027. The Aggies will pay the Bobcats a $1.4 million guarantee for playing the game, according to the copy of the contract.
Texas A&M and Texas State first met on the gridiron in 1919 when the two schools were known as Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas and Southwest Texas State Normal College, respectively. The Aggies defeated the Bobcats in their most recent matchup in 2019, 41-7, and now lead the overall series 3-0.
