Shots have been fired, Texas Longhorns fans.
Last week, Texas A&M Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher took to local television to discuss the renewal of the Texas and Texas A&M rivalry once the Longhorns make it to the SEC.
“College football loves rivalries,” Fisher said, per 247Sports. “Every state loves its rivalries and Texas-Texas A&M is one of the great ones in college football. Now I hope the scheduling and the pods they put it in help enhance that rivalry. I’m sure they will. But we’ll find out in 2025. But listen, when I was at Florida State we had the Miami and Florida rivalries along with Clemson. When I was at Auburn had Alabama. When I was at LSU we played Auburn. Our big ones were Alabama and Auburn every year along with Ole Miss. I love rivalry games. I’ve always been very successful in them. I think that is what it is all about.”
2025 is a long ways away. But then again, it’s not.
