DALLAS (September 14, 2012) -- Texas A&M is taking a trip into its past after losing its first game as a Southeastern Conference member.
The Aggies are headed to SMU (1-1) for the first time in 20 years on Saturday. They will play their rival from the old Southwest Conference, the league they played in before spending the past 16 seasons in the Big 12.
Texas A&M is 10-0-1 its last 11 meetings against SMU. The two teams have played only twice since the SWC broke up after the 1995 season, both at College Station. The last meeting in Dallas was in 1992.
They lost their SEC debut at home last week against Florida. SMU forced 10 turnovers in a 52-0 victory over FCS team Stephen F. Austin last week.
