On June 10, Texas head coach Charlie Strong said the Longhorns were “trying to work something out” with Texas A&M to get the two teams playing against each other again. On Thursday this past week, according to Jeff Howe of 247 Sports, the Longhorns’ athletic director, Mike Perrin, was asked about when the rivalry would be renewed.

Perrin was asked the question by Red McCombs, a businessman, after Perrin had introduced David Pierce as Texas’ new baseball coach.

“Of course I said, ‘yes sir Mr. McCombs, what can I answer for you?” said Perrin, in Howe’s report. “He said, ‘when are we going to play A&M again?’ I told him I thought the game would be played again at some point.”

Later in the article, Perrin says, “I think the game will be restored at some point, but who knows when.”

Perrin also noted that the Longhorns have top-notch non-conference games scheduled for the foreseeable future. Texas A&M finished a home-and-home with Notre Dame in 2025 and in 2026, Texas doesn’t have a non-conference game scheduled yet.

Unfortunately, it may take at least 10 more years to see the former Big 12 foes face each other again. The two teams haven’t played one another since the Aggies left for the SEC.

Texas narrowly defeated the Aggies in their last matchup back in 2011, 27-25.
