Texas A&M adds USC, Oregon to future football schedules

By Kevin Kelley -

The Texas A&M Aggies have announced future football series with the USC Trojans and the Oregon Ducks, both of the Pac-10. The Aggies will play USC in 2015 and 2016 and Oregon in 2018 and 2019.

Venues for the Aggies’ two games against USC have not been announced yet as the two are still finalizing details, but it should be a home-and-home series. Texas A&M will travel to face Oregon in September of 2018 and will host the Ducks in September of 2019.

“I am happy to report we will be adding two west coast schools to our football schedule, the USC Trojans and the Oregon Ducks,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Bill Byrne said. “When you combine USC and Oregon with the non-conference games we have planned with Arkansas, SMU and others in the coming seasons, I think our future football schedules will be challenging and highly entertaining.”

Texas A&M has never played against Oregon. Against the USC Trojans, the Aggies are 0-3. In their last match-up in the 1977 Bluebonnet Bowl, USC won 47-28.

Would really like to see the Big 12 Teams, such as Texas A&M, start playing stiffer competition in preseason games. To settle for playing over ranked, up and down, hit and miss teams from the PAC 10 instead of stepping up to find better teams, such as SEC teams is disheartening, to say the least.

If TX A&M is ever going to be a contender in the BCS they are going to have play and win against the more elite teams in the country.
