After making renovations amounting to almost $500 million, Texas A&M wants to put another game in Kyle Field and Aggie supporters are wanting to know when their annual meeting with Arkansas will finally leave AT&T Stadium, according to DallasNews.com.
The Aggies, Razorbacks and the Dallas Cowboys have a contract that runs through 2024 and Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman considering a change in the future.
“I’m constantly re-evaluating,” Hyman said Tuesday. “Circumstances may change two, three, four, five years from now.”
On the other hand, Arkansas AD Jeff Long said that the Razorbacks are strongly committed to keep playing in Arlington.
“We have 10 more games in the series, including this year,” Long said. “We have a contract through 2024. We are excited about it, and we expect it to continue. A&M has made the commitment twice.”
While both schools benefit from playing in AT&T Stadium, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin said the ideal place to play the Razorbacks at home.
“Would we love to play at home in our new stadium,” Sumlin said. “I don’t think there’s anyone who wouldn’t. … But that was decided before I got here.”
This will be an interesting story to keep an eye on in the future for the two SEC programs.
