Momentum seems to be slowly shifting in the Lone Star State.
After years of battling off the field, Texas A&M and Texas may once again meet on the gridiron. At least that’s the feeling around the programs after both school presidents recently came out to support a potential return to the annual game.
The two programs have not met on the football field since Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the SEC following the 2011 college football season.
It isn’t just the presidents discussing a possible return of the game, Texas A&M students plan to vote on the potential return of the game according to My Aggie Nation. Featured on the next Texas A&M opinion poll will be a question regarding students’ interest in the return of the game.
The question would very directly ask, “Do you support reinstating the Texas A&M University vs. University of Texas rivalry game on our nonconference football schedule?”
At the end of the day, students won’t have any say regarding the potential return of the game but it is noteworthy that the Aggie student body is interested in going on record regarding their support on the issue.
