The UCLA football team has added a home-and-home series with Texas A&M, starting at College Station on Sept. 3, 2016 and returning to the Rose Bowl on Sept. 2, 2017. It will mark the first meeting between the two teams since the 1998 Cotton Bowl, a 29-23 Bruins’ victory that saw Cade McNown lead them back from a 16-0 deficit.

UCLA also added a new home-and-home series with San Diego State in 2019 and 2020. The new additions bump a home-and-home series with Rutgers back to 2020 and 2021.

  • If Mora keeps scheduling games against tougher opponents like these, the only cream-puffs left on the schedule will be the Trojans.

      Very cheeky, but so true.

    Schedule like a contender? Fat Boy Guerrero is ensuring that the ruins will be out of the Top 20 by the end of September. If he had any brains he would schedule sure wins to stay undefeated until conference play.

      If Pat A.K.A li’l Boozy was running the show UCLA would also play Hawaii, Syracuse ect.. .

    Mora will be out the door with Hundley, so he doesn’t care who gets scheduled. Then it’s back to two-star recruits who will be known more for stealing handbags than achieving on the field. Enjoy your short-lived success, Ruins.

      How’s water polo going? (The only thing you have left…) Haden said that you would have made the team, but they couldn’t find a Speedo small enough.

      Jealousy is an ugly reality. See you in the Rose Bowl in November.
