The Texas A&M Aggies are scheduled to play the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on Thursday in Shreveport,but Hurricane Isaac leaves the game in doubt.

The Texas A&M Aggies are scheduled to begin their season on Thursday evening against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Independence Stadium in Shreveport.

With everyone's eyes on Hurricane Isaac, though, there is obviously uncertainty with regard to whether or not the game will actually be played. Louisiana Tech athletic director intends to come to a decision by Tuesday afternoon, via Brent Zwerneman of mysanantonio.com:

Plenty of Aggies remember when seven years ago A&M and Texas State pushed up their nonconference game at Kyle Field to a Thursday night (Sept. 22, 2005) because of Hurricane Rita looming in the Gulf. The Aggies, in then-coach Dennis Franchione's third season, won 44-31 before a crowd of about 50,000 on a clear (albeit surreal) night at Kyle.

"Coach Franchione ripped some (rear end) at halftime," Aggies receiver Jason Carter said after that contest.

The game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT if the game goes as planned on Thursday.
