Aggies planning to arrive in College Station on Saturday for the upcoming Maroon & White spring game are out of luck as the school announced on Wednesday that the game is being moved to Friday. Texas A&M’s spring game is now scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT.
While the situation is less than ideal, Texas A&M said the weather for Saturday would likely not be in the best interest of the fans or the players. Saturday’s weather forecast is calling for lightning and thunderstorms.
“We understand that moving an event of this magnitude affects countless individuals and has many logistical challenges; however, getting the game played is important to our fans and our football program,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Scott Woodward said. “With Saturday’s weather forecast, we believe it is in the best interest of our fans’ experience and the safety of our student-athletes to move the game to Friday.”
Tickets for the game are now free and refunds will be given to fans that have already purchased tickets for the game.
