Ryan Guillen, a Democratic representative from House District 31 in Texas, introduced a house bill on Monday to require an annual football game between the Texas Longhorns and the Texas A&M Aggies.

January 4, 2006. You may remember the day. Vince Young combined for 467 yards of total offense in the Rose Bowl, including 200 of those yards on 19 rushing attempts. Those 200 yards also netted three rushing touchdowns for Young, who was the game’s offensive MVP. LenDale White also rushed for three touchdowns for USC, then went on to become Young’s teammate in Tennessee before they both flamed out of the NFL. Nine records were set on that day. As it turned out, none of it mattered. USC’s appearance in that game was vacated as part of the punishment for improprieties involving Reggie Bush.Read Full Story »

We will dedicate some time to recapping the life and story of a true legend of the game. Hall of Famer Darrell Royal left us on Wednesday, and though he is probably best known for his time at Texas, the namesake of the Longhorns’ stadium actually started his career coaching in the SEC. Royal was 12-8 in two seasons (1954 and 1955) as Mississippi State’s head coach before heading off to Washington and eventually the job for which he is best known.
Royal compiled a 17-3 record against former Southwestern Conference (and current SEC member) Texas A&M during his time in Austin, and though many consider the Red River Shootout the primary Texas rivalry, the Lone Star Showdown will forever hold great meaning to fans of both schoolsRead Full Story »
