BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M Aggies will play their fifth game in 12 days in the City of Houston on Tuesday when they make their way to Schroeder Park to take on the Houston Cougars.

The Aggies have won seven games in a row and have one more midweek on the slate on Tuesday at Houston before kicking off SEC play on Friday vs No. 1 LSU. The Maroon & White is coming off a 5-0 week that was capped by a three-game sweep of Northern Kentucky.

– The Aggies and Cougars have met every year on the diamond since 1965 except for the 2018 and 2020 seasons.

– The 174 previous meetings vs Houston makes UH the fifth-most played opponent in Aggie Baseball history. Only Texas (369), Baylor (324), Rice (285) and TCU (258) have played more.

– UH head coach Todd Whitting was on staff with Texas A&M head coach Jim Schlossnagle at TCU from 2004 to 2010. Whitting served as the associate head coach for Schlossnagle’s Horned Frogs for five seasons before landing the Houston head job in 2010.


Since the Aggies’ loss to Louisville to open up the Shriners Children’s College Classic, Texas A&M has not revisited the loss colum. A year ago the Aggies totaled 44 victories on the year but never won more than four games in a row at any point of the regular season. In fact, its longest win streak was five straight wins during its run through the NCAA Regional and Super Regional to reach Omaha. The last time the Aggies won at least seven games in a row was early in the 2021 season when they closed out pre-conference play with 11 straight wins, a streak capped with a 9-4 win at Houston on March 15. 


The SEC gauntlet is well…
