What we meant to say was the game had a fighting chance at revival after 2018.
That’s supposedly the next available year when Texas has an opening on its non-conference schedule. Aggies beat writer Brent Zwerneman tweets that he spoke with Byrne this afternoon, and that Byrne said Texas told him that would be the earliest the previously annual Thanksgiving game could could be played.
The Longhorns currently have some non-con games against Arkansas, BYU, Cal, Notre Dame and USC scheduled through 2017. And, looking at the football program’s official site, it looks like the earliest slot open is in 2018. Of course, Texas could always opt out of a non-con matchup, but it doesn’t look like Texas is too eager to do so for the Aggies.
