It's sort of a rite of passage for a Texas coach to address the now-defunct Texas A&M rivalry.

Charlie Strong is all for playing the Aggies again.

"It's all about the two ADs getting together and getting that figured out," Strong said. "When you look at it, it's been such a huge rivalry game. ... I think at some point it will get worked out.

"When there's been so much tradition there, you'd like to see it continue on. That's my feeling on it. I'd love to play it."

If one team doesn't want to play on the other's campus, Strong has a solution for that, too.

"You'd like to play it in a neutral site somewhere, where every year it's in that spot, whether it's Houston or Dallas," Strong said.

The Texas-Texas A&M rivalry began in the 1890s but was last played in 2011, a divorce punctuated by the Aggies' move from the Big 12 to the SEC.

Former Texas AD DeLoss Dodds seemed hopeful in early 2013 that the game could be played again, perhaps after 2018.
