LOS ANGELES (AP) – UCLA and Texas A&M have agreed to a home-and-home series, with the Bruins making their first trip to Kyle Field in 2016 and the Aggies visiting the Rose Bowl in 2017.

Both games will be season openers.

The Bruins and Aggies have played four previous times. The last time was in the 1998 Cotton Bowl.  They played three times in California (1940, ’51 and ’55).

Texas A&M will be playing its first regular-season game on the West Coast since 1992, when the Aggies beat Stanford in Anaheim, Calif.

UCLA also announced it has rescheduled its home-and-home with Rutgers to accommodate the Texas A&M series and agreed to a series with San Diego State for 2019 and 2020.  The Bruins and Scarlet Knights will now play in 2020 and 2021.
