The biggest game of the college football season. ESPN has their College GameDay crew headed towards College Station ahead of the big matchup between Texas A&M and Alabama.
Well, at least we think they’re heading to College Station.
According to SportsCenter’s on-screen graphics they aren’t entirely too sure which Texas school Alabama is playing. Instead of putting the A&M logo opposite of Alabama’s they put the University of Texas’ logo instead. Maybe they’re too wrapped up in promoting their Longhorn Network.

Maybe they were confused by A&M senior cornerback’s tweet that they were the university of Texas.
Texas A&M is the university of Texas.

It would be hard to believe that ESPN, and their Longhorn network, missed head coach Mack Brown clarifying that.
“For as long as we’ve had a university, the University of Texas is THE University of Texas in this state, and that’s not going to change, regardless of what some kid tweets,” Brown said at his press briefing on Wednesday, via the Dallas Morning News.
The Longhorns are playing an SEC team this weekend though, Ole Miss is headed to Austin.
