In an announcement earlier this week, the Texas A&M University System Chancellor, John Sharp, stated that the 11 Texas A&M campuses will be re-opening in the fall of 2020. Not only does this mean that students will be able to return to campus, but also in the announcement, the Chancellor stated that sports may resume, including Fightin' Texas Aggie Football!
