No thanks: Aggies say facing Longhorns in regular season no longer an option
College Station — Texas A&M’s brass has changed its tune on whether the Aggies hope to ever play the Texas Longhorns again in football – at least in the regular season.
“We hope to play them again in a BCS or playoff game at some point,” A&M senior associate athletic director Jason Cook told me this afternoon.
That’s a far cry from A&M president R. Bowen Loftin’s assertion from two years ago that the Aggies, who were then preparing for a shift from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference, would agreeably take on the Longhorns any time and anywhere, as nonconference foes.
