                 === Texas A&M and UCLA announce home-and-home ===
 College Station, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Texas A&M and UCLA will hold a home-
 and-home  series  for the  2016 and  2017 seasons, the  schools along with the
 Southeastern and Pac-12 Conferences announced Thursday.
 The Bruins will make their first ever trip to College Station on Sep. 3, 2016,
 and the Aggies will travel to Pasadena on Sep. 2, 2017.
 Texas  A&M hasn't  visited California for a regular-season game since knocking
 off Stanford in its season opener back in 1992.
 "We  are very  pleased this series was  able to come together and provides our
 program  with  an exciting, premier  non-conference matchup against UCLA, said
 Texas A&M director of athletics Eric Hyman in a statement. "UCLA brings one of
 the top programs on 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."
 The  programs have split the four previous matchups, the last of which came in
 the  1998 Cotton Bowl in Dallas. UCLA won, 29-23, despite a Cotton Bowl-record
 20 tackles from A&M linebacker Dat Nguyen.
