The rest of the long weekend's schedule, starting with the game between the Aggies and Longhorns. The A&M-Texas game is a perfect example of what I spoke about last week, that rivalries without the nicknames or ridiculous trophies tend to be the ones worth watching for the serious fan (the exception that the proves the rule, "The Iron Bowl", is better known to fans outside the state of Alabama as the Auburn-Bama game; I'd been following the sport for about 25 years before I even knew the reference). The other critical game today is the battle to decide the SEC East, Arkansas and LSU. The Razorbacks have drifted under the radar all year, but now find themselves two wins away from a BCS game (and likely match-up with Florida State; two schools with 8-10 losses between them splitting millions, while SC and Texas settle for the Holiday Bowl !!)
