Miami and Texas A&M are reportedly working on a deal to play a home-and-home football series in 2022-23.
Miami Herald writer Barry Jackson included the tidbit in his Sports Buzz column on Tuesday evening.
Per sources, UM is finalizing a deal to play a home-and-home football series with Texas A&M in 2022 and 2023.
UM’s philosophy is to play one marquee non-conference game annually, and this Aggies deal gives Miami one on the schedule for the next seven years. The others: Notre Dame in 2017 in Miami, LSU to open the 2018 season in Arlington, Tx.; Florida to open the 2019 season in Orlando; and a home-and-home with Michigan State in 2020 and 2021.
The 'Canes and Aggies have matched up three times in history, with Miami holding a 2-1 edge in the all-time series. Texas A&M picked up its lone win in 1944, a 70-14 blowout win. Miami swept a recent two-game series, beating the Aggies 34-17 in 2007, and 41-23 in 2008.
