For those hoping to see a renewal of one of college football’s most iconic rivalries, we strongly urge you to not hold your breath. In an interview with Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express-News, Texas athletic director Steve Patterson was asked once again about the possibility of a game against hated in-state rival Texas A&M. And, once again, Patterson appeared to have absolutely no interest in rekindling the rivalry. “Until there’s a case made that it makes sense to play a game against another school in the state of Texas, I don’t see us focusing on it,” the AD said. Prior to the Aggies leaving for the SEC in 2012, the UT-A&M game had been played every year between 1915-2011 and 109 games total were played in a series that dated back to 1903.
