With each passing year since the Texas A&M Aggies made the move to the SEC, everyone will still ask when the rivalry game between the Aggies and the Texas Longhorns will be renewed. The two last played in late November of 2011, with the Longhorns coming out on top before A&M did move on.
Today on the Paul Finebaum Show, Texas AD Steve Patterson made an appearance and when he was asked about the possibility of a renewal, he made it pretty clear that the rivalry is “dead,” unless something drastic occurs.
UT AD Steve Patterson told us “unless there is a compelling reason,” the football series between Texas and Texas A&M is dead.

Texas has been the most defiant throughout all of the talk, and Patterson really emphasized that point with his comments today. Although as with anything else, you never really can say never in regards to college football, so the situation may arise one day where everyone’s minds can change, including that of Patterson.
