Texas Vs. Texas A&M Rivalry Not Dead Forever, Says DeLoss Dodds

Thursday night's win by the Texas Longhorns over the Texas A&M Aggies marked the last-ever Big 12 battle between the ancient rivals, with no games scheduled for the future either. Common sense dictates that it won't be the last time the two ever play, as there's too much money and too much history at stake for both sides to just give up forever due to ego.

Here's aggrieved Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds on the continuation of the series once cooler heads prevail:

"It will be played again sometime, somewhere down the road," said Dodds before kickoff. "When and if, it will have to be the right situation. It will have to be positive for us."    

A&M has maintained throughout that, despite jumping to the SEC, it wants to maintain its rivalry with Texas. The Horns have turned up their noses and claimed they're simply too busy for the time being.
