Kellen Mond wants to see Texas-Texas A&M rivalry return soon
Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond grew up in San Antonio, and you can bet he would watch the Aggies play their biggest rival — the Texas Longhorns — every year.
Now, though, that rivalry is no longer played after the Aggies moved to the SEC from the Big 12. However, pressure is mounting for the two schools to get back together.
During SEC Media Days on Tuesday, Mond said he thinks it would be great for the entire Lone Star State for the Longhorns and Aggies to revive the rivalry:
“I think it would be good for sports, I think it would be good for Texas — the state of Texas, as a whole,” Mond said. “Obviously, I have no control over the schedule, like you said, but I definitely think it would bring that rivalry back and bring competition to the state of Texas — not only to the field but in recruiting, too.”
Even governor Greg Abbott wants to get the two programs back together on the gridiron. It seems the only people who don’t want to see the rivalry renewed are the people who could actually make it happen.
The rivalry doesn’t seem to be nearing a return yet, but we’ll see what happens in the coming decade.
