LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State football team and Central Michigan University have signed a home-and-home contract to square off in 2019 and 2026, Director of Athletics Mario Moccia announced on Friday.

“I have a lot of experience playing in the MAC while at Kent State and know that Central Michigan has a tremendous program with great tradition,” said NM State head football coach Doug Martin. “They have always been a really good program that will make for a great home-and-home matchup.”

The first meeting in history between the Aggies and Chippewas is scheduled for Oct. 12, 2019 at Kelly Shorts Stadium. The Crimson & White then play host to CMU on Sept. 5, 2026 at Aggie Memorial Stadium.

Coming off a historic 2017 season that saw New Mexico State break a 57-year bowl drought and win the 2017 NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, the Aggies are scheduled to open their 2018 campaign with Wyoming on Saturday, August 25, in the friendly confines of Aggie Memorial Stadium.
