Horns and Aggies keep up turkey battle

By Anthony Casson

The University of Texas and Texas A&M University will continue their Thanksgiving evening brawl, it was announced Tuesday along with the added UT home games against BYU and UTEP for 2011 and 2012.

Through the 2010 and 2011 seasons, the Longhorns will play their annual rivalry game against the Aggies during Thanksgiving dinner. Just this last season, the two teams fought to the bitter end at TAMU’s Kyle Field; Texas won 49-39.

This year, the Aggies will travel to Austin, but things will be a bit different on the Burnt Orange side of the ball. Record-setting Longhorn QB Colt McCoy will not be around to help lead UT towards a victory; rather, young-gun Garrett Gilbert will play under center. The Aggies will be playing with an experienced group, including the very exciting QB Jerrod Johnson.

If you’ve never watched the Lone Star Showdown, please do this coming November; it’s a major tribute to another heated rivalry that makes the college spectacle so wonderful.
