FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Fresno State has scheduled football games at Texas A&M in 2020 and Arizona State in 2023.

Athletic director Jim Bartko announced the single-game contracts on Thursday. Bartko says these games satisfy the need to play elite competition and to earn money to help fund the athletic department.

Fresno State played Texas A&M once previously in 2007 in College Station, Texas. The Bulldogs have played Arizona State three times, with the most recent coming in 1941.
