In the words of Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong, something is in the works which would pit bitter rivals Texas and Texas A&M against each other on the gridiron once again, per HookEm.com:

An audience member at the Touchdown Club of Houston asked Strong about renewing the rivalry, to which the coach said, "they're trying to work out something right now where we go play the Aggies."

Strong's comments are obviously something that will churn more speculation of when the two programs can renew one of the most stories rivalries in college football history. Unfortunately, this may just be a appetizer to satisfy the hunger for the two teams and fanbases alike to reclaim bragging rights in what's resorted to recruiting tiffs and nearly nothing more. College football as a whole deserves more, but that may not be something headed our way in the near future.

Texas AD Mike Perrin previously noted that the rivalry wasn't on his drawing board, but realistically, the chatter will never cease and we're all quite eager to see Perrin's artistic prowess, should he make the matter a priority.

The last time the Longhorns and Aggies squared off was in 2011 when Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal as time expired gave Texas the 27-25 victory in a classic Texas A&M sendoff. Overall, Texas leads the series 76-37-5.
