New Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork is no fan of conference games at neutral sites – and that likely has the A&M series with Arkansas at AT&T Stadium on borrowed time. The current contract between the two schools and AT&T Stadium runs through 2024. The two schools, who have played in Arlington since 2014, meet next Saturday. Bjork says he has spoken in general terms with Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek about his feelings. Because of its commitment to play games in Arlington and Little Rock, Arkansas only has two SEC games in Fayetteville this season – Auburn and Mississippi State. He said he is aware of the importance of the Dallas market but feels A&M already has a good footprint in the region. Bjork said he would have no problem with playing a one-off non-conference game at a neutral site if that opportunity presented himself. -Chuck Carlton, The Dallas Morning News. Read More.
