Texas A&M is considering the possibility of delaying its 2009 football season opener against New Mexico by one day to make it a Sunday national telecast, athletic director Bill Byrne said today.
As it stands, the game is set for Saturday, Sept. 5 in Kyle Field. If moved, it would fall on Sunday, Sept. 6. In a statement released by school officials, Byrne said A&M officials “will discuss with New Mexico … the feasibility of such a move.” An announcement, Byrne said, could be made during the Big 12 conference meetings in May.
