The Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies are unlikely to meet in football until at least 2019, USAToday.com has reported.
Texas A&M has talked to Texas about future games, but the Longhorns have told them that their non-conference schedule is filled through the 2018 season.
Currently, Texas only has two non-conference games scheduled for the 2018 season, at Maryland on Sept. 1 and home vs. USC on Sept. 15. The Longhorns likely either have a verbal agreement for a third game or don’t want to play three BCS non-conference opponents in the same season.
The Longhorns and Aggies have met 117 times and have played every year since 1915. Texas leads the overall series 75-37-5.
Statesman.com also reports that Texas A&M “…has received no overtures from any in-state schools about playing future football games.” A&M President R. Bowen Loftin also told the paper that the Aggies probably won’t play “…any other Big 12 schools in football on a regular basis.”
Regarding the annual game against Arkansas at Cowboys Stadium, Loftin said that Texas A&M has “…no problem continuing the game there.”
