Woman's petition to bring back UT vs. A&M rivalry game gaining steam

A new petition on change.org calls for the return of the legendary rivalry between the UT Longhorn and Texas A&M Aggie football teams.

The annual game took place around Thanksgiving every year for decades and was the basis of many of each school’s traditions. The rivalry game ended when Texas A&M left the Big 12 conference and joined the Southeastern conference in 2012.

The last time the two teams faced off was 2011.

The petition’s author said neither team has won a division title since that last game. She makes the argument that the rivalry is good for both teams and gives each of them a goal for the season and fires up the fans.
