State representative files bill to require annual football game between Texas A&M, UT
A bill was filed Monday by a state representative from Rio Grande City that, if passed, would require two Texas universities to go head-to-head every year -- on the football field.
Rep. Ryan Guillen, an Aggie Democrat, filed House Bill 778 in an effort to see Texas A&M University back on the same field as their longtime rivals, the University of Texas Longhorns.
Texas A&M moved to the Southeastern Conference this year, bringing their matchups with the Longhorns to an end.
The two teams played for the final time on November 25, 2011. Longhorns won 27-25, closing a more than century-old rivalry on a sour note for Aggie fans.
Guillen isn't ready for that competition to end just yet. The next step is for HB778 to be assigned to a committee for possible consideration.
