Texas A&M to host UTEP in 2013

Texas A&M filled out their 2013 non-conference schedule with a home game against UTEP.


Friday night, the Texas A&M Aggies and UTEP Miners have agreed to play on Nov. 2, 2013. The announcement came from UTEP's athletic director Bob Stull, and this game completes Texas A&M's non-conference schedule. The other three non-conference games are all home games and are against Rice, Sam Houston State and SMU.

Texas A&M's SEC schedule was released back in October and adding UTEP will give them eight home games for the upcoming season. This additional home game late in the year will be part of a four-game home stand for the Aggies, and it will be sandwiched between playing Vanderbilt prior and Mississippi State after.

Also, this game replaces the canceled contest that was previously scheduled against New Mexico for Nov. 16. Now, that Nov. 16 date is a an off week for Texas A&M.

These two team have played twice with the Aggies winning both games, 20-17 in 1984 and 45-17 in 2000.
