Two of the more resurgent programs in college football announced on Thursday that they will play a home-and-home series with one another as the Texas A&M Aggies and UCLA Bruins will square off, beginning in 2016 when the Bruins take a trip to Kyle Field.
New series announced. Texas A&M will play UCLA at Kyle Field in 2016, at the Rose Bowl in 2017.

The following year, Texas A&M will go out west to California to face the Bruins once again inside the Rose Bowl.
What’s most refreshing about this announcement is that it’s a home-and-home as opposed to the now-famous neutral site match ups.
The past few seasons, with their respective young coaches at the helm, both UCLA and Texas A&M are making runs at becoming premiere programs in the college football landscape. This offseason, Kyle Field is being renovated to hold over 100,000 fans, and the Rose Bowl is–well, it’s the Rose Bowl.
Should these two programs continue on their current track, these will be two fun games to watch in ’16 and ’17.
