Texas A&M left confused after Boston College cancels game over travel conditions

Texas AM Aggies

Saturday’s scheduled basketball game between Texas A&M and Boston College is off, and the Aggies aren’t hiding their irritation.

The Aggies were slated to host Boston College Saturday afternoon, but the Eagles apparently couldn’t get out of Boston quickly enough due to weather issues. This excuse did not fly with Texas A&M, who didn’t hide their displeasure.

According to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle, the Aggies were frustrated by the fact that other planes were landing at the airport even at Boston College refused to. A&M even offered to move the game back by two hours, but Boston College flatly refused to play on the same day that they traveled, instead asking to move the game back to Sunday. The Aggies refused this request.

This was one of Texas A&M’s bigger games of the non-conference slate, and now it’s off without being rescheduled. It will be interesting to see if the Aggies pursue a financial penalty here.
