Aggies finalize 2015 nonconference slate

Texas A&M will be at home or close to it for the balance of its nonconference schedule in 2015.

The school announced Thursday that it has finalized its 2015 nonconference schedule, which includes three home games at what will then be freshly remodeled Kyle Field, as well as its clash with Arizona State in Houston, which was announced last November.

The nonconference schedule begins with a Sept. 5, 2015 game against Arizona State at Houston’s NRG Stadium (formerly known as Reliant Stadium), followed by a meeting with Ball State on Sept. 12 at Kyle Field. On Sept. 19, Nevada will visit Kyle Field, likely bringing a familiar face back to Aggieland – Nevada head coach Brian Polian was the Aggies’ special teams coordinator under head coach Kevin Sumlin in the 2012 season.

Rounding out the nonconference schedule is a Nov. 14 game against Western Carolina at Kyle Field.

The Aggies’ home schedule in 2015 also consists of SEC games against Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State and South Carolina. The Aggies travel to LSU, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt for road conference games in 2015 and will meet Arkansas in a neutral-site game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
