The A&M-Texarkana Eagles will take on the Northeast Texas Community College Eagles on Friday, Aug. 18, with the women set to scrimmage at 5 p.m. and the men at 7 p.m.  Originally scheduled in Mount Pleasant, the matches were moved to Texarkana because of field conditions.

That afternoon the women’s and men’s teams will face Bethel University at 5 and 7 p.m. in the second annual Border Cup tournament. The teams will then take on Bacone College at 5 and 7 p.m. on Aug. 26.


Now in its second year as a member of the Red River Athletic Conference, A&M-Texarkana will face its first RRAC opponent of the season on Sept. 23 as it takes on Wiley College in Marshall, Texas.


Homecoming is set for Oct. 14, with men’s and women’s matches against Louisiana State University Alexandria. Senior Day will be Oct. 28.
