Ball State has added Texas A&M to its non-conference football schedule for Sept. 12, 2015, while its previously announced game with Middle Tennessee State will move to Sept. 19, 2015.
"The 2015 out of conference slate will present some great challenges for our program,” Ball State head football coach Pete Lembo said. “At the same time, we are excited about these opportunities as we expect to field a mature team that season. The game at Northwestern will be a great opportunity for a large group of Ball State alumni in the Chicagoland area to see us in action against a Big 10 opponent."
Upon completion of the 2014 football campaign, the west side of Texas A&M’s Kyle Field will be in its first phase of redevelopment. The Aggies completely redeveloped stadium will open in 2016. Texas A&M will open the 2015 season Sept. 5 in Houston in the Advocare Texas Kickoff against Arizona State.
In addition, Ball State has announced a home-and-home series with Western Kentucky for the 2017 and 2018 campaigns.
