2020 Texas A&M vs. Tennessee

by Travis Normand

The Texas Aggies travel to Tennessee this weekend where they will play the Tennessee Volunteers for only the fourth (4th) time in program history.

The series between Texas A&M and UT is as follows:

  1. December 28, 1957: Gator Bowl (Jacksonville, Florida) – Tennessee won 3-0;
  2. January 1, 2005: Cotton Bowl (Dallas, Texas) – Tennessee won 38-7;
  3. October 8, 2016: Kyle Field (College Station, Texas) – Texas A&M won 45-38; and
  4. December 19, 2020: Neyland Stadium (Knoxville, Tennessee) – ?

This game against Tennessee on December 19th will be the latest regular season game ever played by Texas A&M.

Before this game, the latest regular season game for the Aggies was on on December 8, 1934 when A&M defeated Michigan State (26-13) in San Antonio, Texas, and then again on December 8, 1944 when A&M defeated Miami (70-14 in Miami.

Further, as far as I know, there are only four college stadiums and/or fields that are named for someone who attended Texas A&M (even if their attendance was only for a couple of days). Those four stadiums / fields are: (1) Kyle Field; (2) Boone Pickens Stadium; (3) Joe Jamail Field (since renamed); and (4) Neyland Stadium. Texas A&M has played and won in three of these stadiums / fields, with the exception being Tennessee’s Neyland stadium.
