Nevada cancels games against BYU, UCLA, adds Buffalo and Texas A&M

Nevada adds a SEC and MAC opponent, but drops a game against the Pac-12 and BYU.

The Nevada Wolf Pack have been busy adjusting their future football schedule by adding and subtracting games. The Wolf Pack will be taking on their first-ever SEC opponent as they travel to College Station, Texas, to take on Texas A&M in a one-and-done game on Sept. 19, 2015 and will cash in on $1.5 million for this game, not too bad.

While this is the first game against a SEC opponent this is the second time Nevada has faced Texas A&M. The two schools played each other over 60 years ago in 1950 when the Aggies were in the old Southwest Conference while the Wolf Pack were a Division II Independent team.

The other team that Nevada has added is Buffalo out of the MAC, and those games will be played in Sept. 26, 2015 at Buffalo and the return game is in Reno on Sept. 17, 2016.

Now onto the teams that Nevada is losing from the schedule. The Wolf Pack and UCLA have agreed to cancel their home-and-home series in 2015 and 2016, subsequently UCLA added BYU for those same games.

Speaking of BYU, the 2019 game against them and Nevada that was to be played in Provo, Utah, was canceled. The two schools will instead play a home-and-home instead of a two-for-one.

Finally, Nevada postponed their one game against Idaho in 2015 and that game will be played in either 2021 or 2022, but likely that game will never be played.
