Bill in Texas Legislature calls for renewal of Texas/Texas A&M rivalry game.

A Texas legislator is trying to rectify one of the biggest issues facing the Lone Star State in these troubled times - the fact that Texas and Texas A&M aren't playing each other at the end of the season. State Rep. Ryan Gullen (D), an A&M grad,  has introduced a bill in the Texas Legislature that would require the two schools to renew the cherish rivalry that ended when the Aggies defected from the Big 12 to the SEC.

In a statement to ESPN, Gullen said  "The purpose of this bill is to put the 'eyes of Texas upon' our two greatest state universities to restore this sacred Texas tradition. I think the people of Texas want a game, and we're trying to get them one."

This is obviously a move made by a politician trying to get attention for himself and to woo over voters. If Gullen seriously wants the Longhorn-Aggie rivalry game to return, he really needs to seek a higher power with the ability to make it happen . The one in Bristol, Ct.
