    Texas A&M schedules a home in home series with UCLA for 2016 and 2017

    Good match up that will give us some exposure in the Rose Bowl.

    OLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M and UCLA have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2017, the schools announced Thursday.

    More from ESPN.com
    UCLA and Texas A&M announced a home-and-home series. What other nonconference matchups would we like to see? Mark Schlabach has five. Story

    The Aggies will host the Bruins at Kyle Field -- which is undergoing a $450 million renovation that is scheduled for completion in 2015 -- on Sept. 3, 2016, and UCLA will host Texas A&M at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Sept. 2, 2017. UCLA has never played at Kyle Field; the Aggies haven't played a regular-season game in California since 1992 against Stanford.

    Both programs have risen in the past two years. The Aggies are 20-6 in two seasons under Kevin Sumlin, and the Bruins are 19-8 since Jim Mora took over prior to the 2012 season. Both coaches were rewarded with new contracts late last year.

    The teams have met four times, splitting the series 2-2. The most recent meeting came in 1998; the previous three were all before 1960.

    "We are very pleased this series was able to come together and provides our program with an exciting, premier nonconference matchup against UCLA," Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman said in a statement. "UCLA brings one of the top programs from the West Coast to the redeveloped Kyle Field in Aggieland, and for our Aggie team and the 12th Man to have the chance to play in the Rose Bowl is a historic opportunity."

    UCLA also announced it has rescheduled its home and home with Rutgers to accommodate the Texas A&M series and agreed to a series with San Diego State for 2019 and 2020. The Bruins and Scarlet Knights will now play in 2020 and 2021

    Already a thread on this, but great OOC game.
