Bowl Game: Aggies hiding from the Longhorns?!?

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7

Well, THAT's interesting:

Report: SEC/Texas A&M want to avoid Horns-Aggies Texas Bowl

Since discussion about a possible face off between the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies in the Texas Bowl on December 29 at NRG Stadium in Houston first surfaced when the Horns became bowl eligible on Saturday evening, it was only a matter of time until reports started emerging about one school or the other not wanting to play the game.

And so while some believe that neither administration wants the game, the first report emerged on Tuesday morning suggesting that the Aggies and/or the SEC don't want the game to happen.

Chip Brown of Horns Digest is reporting the following:
Two sources close to the situation told SEC officials have indicated to bowls with SEC and Big 12 tie-ins that the SEC won't support a Texas vs Texas A&M postseason matchup. In short, A&M has too much to lose from a potential loss.
The report is furthering the growing narrative that Texas A&M is the school with more to lose, especially on the recruiting trail, and enabled by the fact that the SEC and bowl executives will be working from a pool of six teams to determine bowl placement -- the conference does have the power to ensure that the Longhorns and Aggies don't face off in the Texas Bowl if that's what the SEC decides.
