The Texas-Texas A&M Football Rivalry Is Over, “Unless There Is A Compelling Reason,” AD Says

The Texas-Texas A&M football rivalry ended, for the time being, when the Aggies made the move from the Big 12 to the SEC. The two schools have not played each other on the gridiron since 2011, Texas A&M’s last year in the Big 12 conference. Many people, though, would like to see Texas’ two premier college football programs play in the non-conference, but that isn’t likely to happen. 

The question here, obviously, is what would qualify as a “compelling” reason? Both programs being national championship contenders? The game being played on a neutral site, perhaps AT&T Stadium in Arlington?

Texas and Texas A&M are two of the country’s best college football programs, and it would be great for everyone involved if the rivalry could be reignited somehow.
