Remember the last time the Texas football team faced off against Texas A&M Aggies? The Longhorns definitely do.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Houston Chronicle broke news that the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners expressed interest in joining the Southeastern Conference.
On Thursday afternoon, the official Texas football account took the opportunity to troll its longtime, in-state rival who they no longer play regularly.
As the possibility of conference realignment seems to be getting closer to reality for both Oklahoma and Texas, memes and jokes are certainly making their way all over Twitter. And now official accounts are getting involved.
The Longhorns reminded Texas A&M of which team won the last time the Aggies and Longhorns faced each other on the football field.
For those who don’t know, Texas and Texas A&M last played back in 2011 and the Longhorns sent the Aggies over to the SEC by winning on a field goal as time expired. Texas won 27-25 in what could have been the last meeting between the two teams.
But, now it seems like there’s a chance the two teams might be facing each other regularly once again.
Texas football: Longhorns take to Twitter to troll the Texas A&M Aggies
Of course, it shouldn’t be a surprise the Aggies are going to do everything they can to fight any sort of move that would involve the Texas Longhorns joining the SEC. Wednesday, Texas A&M AD Ross Bjork sounded off on the possibility of Texas meeting back up with the Aggies in the SEC.
But Bjork and the Aggies may very well be outnumbered in the SEC on whether or not to allow the Texas Longhorns (and the Oklahoma Sooners) in. It truly may not matter much about what Texas A&M wants here. And it seems unlikely that the Aggies are very happy about that.
