This Thanksgiving one of college football’s oldest and most storied rivalries will be put on indefinite hold when Texas and Texas A&M meet for the last time as Big 12 foes. 

The Aggies wanted to continue the game when they left for the Southeastern Conference in July. But the Longhorns told the Aggies that their non-conference schedule is full through 2018. Former A&M star defensive end/linebacker Von Miller says ending the game, which began in 1894 and has been played every season since 1915, will be a “big loss for college football.”

Some are mad at the Longhorns for not accommodating Texas A&M. But Texas graduate Anne Finley says the blame should be on A&M since “they’re the ones leaving” the Big 12.
