Texas A&M Updates Opponents For 2012 Football Schedule

Texas A&M's maiden voyage through the Southeastern Conference is starting to resemble a very long road trip. A&M announced this week that it will add an away game at Louisiana Tech and host FCS member South Carolina State, while dropping FCS member McNeese State. Currently A&M has only four games in College Station on its 2012 schedule.

Both sets of Bulldogs will round out the month of September for the Aggies, with A&M opening at Louisiana Tech at a "neutral site" - the Independence Bowl in Shreveport. The game will be played on August 30, a Thursday night, although no official TV partner has been named yet for the game. Since the non-conference game is designated as road game for A&M, it doesn't fall into the automatic broadcast agreement for the SEC.

The addition still leaves the A&M with one hole in their schedule, a TBA date they've listed as November 17, meaning they'll take a bye week on October 13 between games against Ole Miss and LSU. Also yet to be determined is the location of the Aggies' game against now-division foe Arkansas, a contest that, before SEC expansion, was part of a ten-year contract at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

Courtesy of the official A&M athletics site, here's the schedule as it stands now:
