The Texas A&M Aggies have added games against ULM, Abilene Christian, and New Mexico State to their future football schedules, FBSchedules.com has learned.

Copies of contracts for games with all three opponents were obtained from Texas A&M University via a state Public Information Act request.

Texas A&M will host the ULM Warhawks at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, on September 16, 2023. The Aggies will pay the Warhawks a $1.6 million guarantee for the game, according to the copy of the contract.
