The Texas A&M Aggies will play the Northwestern State Demons in 2018 and the Lamar Cardinals in 2019, FBSchedules.com has learned.
Texas A&M will host Northwestern State at Kyle Field in College Station on Sept. 1, 2018. The Demons will receive a $515,000 guarantee for the game, according to a copy of the contract obtained by FBSchedules.com via a public records request to Texas A&M.
The 2018 meeting will be the first ever between Texas A&M and Northwestern State on the gridiron.
Northwestern State competes in the Southland Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Demons finished the 2016 season 1-10 overall and 0-9 in conference play.
The Aggies will host the Lamar Cardinals at Kyle Field on Sept. 14, 2019. Lamar will receive a guarantee of $500,000, according to a copy of the contract obtained by FBSchedules.com.
Lamar, which also competes in the Southland Conference, completed the 2016 season 3-8 overall and 3-6 in conference action.
In their first and only meeting back in 2014, Texas A&M defeated Lamar 73-3.
The addition of games against Northwestern State and Lamar tentatively completes Texas A&M’s non-conference schedule through the 2020 season.
