The Texas Longhorns, alongside the Oklahoma Sooners, are set to join the SEC in 2024.
But while we anticipate the Texas and Oklahoma rivalry to continue seamlessly – after all, that was part of the value for the SEC in their additions – when we the Longhorns once again take on the Texas A&M Aggies?
It’s a question that still lacks an answer. But even Aggies are excited:
A&M and Texas playing football again is the big draw of them joining the SEC (from an Aggie perspective). But I'm just as excited to play them in basketball and a weekend series in baseball. Those atmospheres will be unreal.— Robert Behrens (@rcb05) February 10, 2023
It will be fun to have the rivalry back in full force.
