The UC Davis Aggies have added the Stetson Hatters to their 2026 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.

A copy of the football game contract with Stetson University was obtained from the University of California, Davis, via a state public records request.

UC Davis will host Stetson at UC Davis Health Stadium in Davis, Calif., on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2026. The Aggies will pay the Hatters a $170,000 guarantee for the game, according to the copy of the contract.

UC Davis, a member of the Big Sky Conference, and Stetson, a member of the Pioneer Football League, have never met on the gridiron in their history.
