When Texas A&M left the Big 12 to join the SEC in 2011, that signaled the end of the yearly rivalry game between the Aggies and Texas.
Despite A&M leaving the conference, there have been rumblings in the past few years about the possibility of the two schools re-kindling the rivalry and new Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong told CBS that he would be open to the idea.
“It’s all about the two ADs getting together and getting that figured out,” Strong said. "When you look at it, it’s been such a huge rivalry game. I think at some point it will get worked out. When there’s been so much tradition there, you’d like to see it continue on. That’s my feeling on it. I’d love to play it.”
Former Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said last year that the Longhorns would be open to playing the Aggies, but it’d have to be UT’s terms since A&M left the conference.
“They left. They’re the ones that decided not to play us. We get to decide when we play again,” Dodds said last March.
