The Aggies will play four home games on Friday, with the remaining three games coming against rival Baylor and Oklahoma.
The schedule for the season opener is now complete, with a few key games still to be determined.
Texas is scheduled to face Oklahoma State on Friday night at 7 p.m.
ET, and Oklahoma State will face TCU at 7:30 p.r.m., on a Thursday night.
Texas will then host LSU on Friday at 7 a.m.; then Texas will travel to Auburn for a home game against Georgia Tech on Saturday at 4 p.p.m, followed by a bye week for the first week of November.
On Saturday, Texas will host Alabama in a home-and-home series, but there are still a couple of road games to play before that.
The Longhorns will travel across the state of Texas to face a visiting Texas A&M team, then will play Texas Tech at home.
