So far the Aggies' men's schedule has potentially two non-conference games to fill. Right now there are 29 games.
UNM (home opener first week of November)
UTEP (Two weeks later)
Then it drops off
North Carolina A&T
It would be nice to get another Division I home game, but I'm curious what your thoughts are on opening the season with a rivalry game? Both teams could be pretty good and I like the idea of a tough game to open the season and get people excited about the season and the team. It's an early, important game for the Aggies, who were swept by the Lobos last year.
ESPN typically completes its schedule for the first week of games by August so hopefully the network has some interest in a rivalry game on the first weekend of the season.
