"We're very excited about the upcoming series with Texas A&M," said head football coach Larry Coker. "A matchup of Miami versus Texas A&M is sure to generate plenty of national attention as both these programs traditionally play at a high level. Also, we have a lot of fans in Texas as we usually have several players on our team from the state and this will give us a chance to play before our fans in that area."
"It's an exciting matchup for us for several reasons," said athletic
director Paul Dee. "Obviously, this will be a series that has national
appeal as it will feature two of the nation's best football programs. Also,
it gives us a game against a prominent team from the Big 12 Conference with
a road game in one of our primary recruiting areas and it helps us maintain
our tradition of playing the best teams in the nation."
Texas A&M will visit Miami to start the series on September 15, 2007. The
Hurricanes will travel to College Station to take on the Aggies at Kyle
Field on September 13, 2008.
