AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s in the public conversation yet again. Texas and Texas A&M are discussing a potential reunion on the football field, but whether the talk turns into action is open for another debate.
Coaches, presidents, adminstrators on both sides have expressed interest in renewing the game, but that’s usually where it all ends.
I’ve yet to meet a Texan who doesn’t want this storied rivalry back on the schedules. I look forward to this happening! Hook ‘Em! https://t.co/fKwoft2S9b— James B. Milliken (@jbmilliken) January 21, 2019
Chancellor for the University of Texas system James B. Milliken is in favor of bringing the game back.
The two teams haven’t met since 2011 when Texas defeated A&M on a last-second field goal by Justin Tucker.
Finding a date will be a problem as both teams are tied up with non-conference opponents for the foreseeable future.
Currently, Texas is booked up with a marquee non-conference matchup for every year until 2030. Texas A&M is scheduled with non-conference games through 2027.
