There are two main universities in the state of Texas. Texas and Texas A&M. You either bleed burnt orange or maroon. Either way, these two schools have not played since 2011. It has been too long since this storied rivalry has had a new chapter on the gridiron.

Because of the pride of the schools, neither administration has made a serious attempt to reignite the rivalry. Whatever their reasoning may be, let's take that decision out of their hands. The Texas Congress should mandate they play every year in order to maintain state funding. 

There are many advantages to keeping this tradition alive. Economically, the game would keep money in the state. Additionally, the storied rivalry would be played on thanksgiving night, bringing both schools to the national stage, where people all over the nation would see the game. Thus growing both schools' application numbers and overall notoriety. Finally, there are hundreds of thousands of alumni of these great schools that desire to see this game brought back as Texas is a state with football as its forefront.
