Jimbo Fisher names 3 teams he'd like to have as Texas A&M's permanent rivals
Jimbo Fisher took the main stage at SEC Media Days in Atlanta on Thursday to wrap up the press conferences for all 14 head coaches.
Like many coaches before him, the Texas A&M leader was asked about potential new scheduling models once Texas and Oklahoma join the league.
As for who he’d like to see the Aggies play every year as potential 3 permanent rivals, Fisher named Texas, LSU and Mississippi State. He also mentioned Arkansas, but not among his initial 3:
Newsy: Jimbo Fisher said he believes if A&M has three permanent SEC rivals that they'll be Texas, LSU and Mississippi State (or at least the early model presented to him). Lot of people have figured it would be Arkansas.

Fisher acknowledged the history of the Arkansas-Texas A&M rivalry, but Mississippi State was his third pick, not the Hogs.
Of course, there’s still plenty of time to discuss potential rivals and scheduling formats before the Longhorns and Sooners join the SEC, so we’ll see what happens in the coming months and years.
