Old Rival TCU New Again For Texas

AUSTIN (November 19, 2012) -- Texas has a new rival. Or make that an old one.

With the breakup of the annual Texas-Texas A&M rivalry after more than 100 years, the No. 18 Longhorns will face Big 12 newcomer TCU on Thanksgiving night in a renewal of an old Southwest Conference grudge match.

Several Longhorns (8-2, 5-2 Big 12) say not playing the Aggies feels kind of weird. Senior safety Kenny Vaccaro says he misses the rivalry with A&M "a lot" and wishes he could play them "one more time."

TCU (6-4, 3-4) is one of Texas' oldest rivals. The teams have met 83 times, but just once since 1995.
