Aggies: No intention of playing Horns

It's unknown whether new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson wants to revive the Longhorns' rivalry with Texas A&M, but it probably won't matter.

It's pretty clear the Aggies have no intention of scheduling any future regular-season games with Texas.

We hope to play them again in a BCS bowl or playoff game at some point.

"We hope to play them again in a BCS bowl or playoff game at some point," Texas A&M senior associate athletic director Jason Cook told ESPN on Wednesday.

Cook would not elaborate.

In 2014, Texas A&M will play LSU on Thanksgiving, which was the usual date for the Aggies and Longhorns until their series ended in 2011. Texas A&M and LSU are expected to play annually on Thanksgiving night going forward, a source said.

The SEC has not released its conference schedules beyond 2014.

At the SEC spring meetings in May, Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin was asked by ESPN if he had anything to say about Texas.

"I don't have to anymore," Loftin said. "It's not relevant to us anymore."

Texas A&M and Texas played 118 times between 1894 and 2011, until the Aggies left the Big 12 for the SEC.
