Texas Racetrack Wants To Host A Texas Vs. Texas A&M Football Game
Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports
After attending the Battle at Bristol a couple of weeks ago between Tennessee and Virginia Tech, the president of Fort Worth’s 180,000-seat Texas Motor Speedway, Eddie Gossage, wants to host a football game at his track. Not any football game, he wants to host a Texas vs. Texas A&M matchup...
quote:

... Gossage isn’t married to a Sooners-Longhorns matchup at his place, knowing their long history with the Cotton Bowl. He’s open to adding SEC flavor and helping renew the Texas-Texas A&M rivalry that died after 118 meetings in 2011. Perhaps a massive payday and the national hype that would surround those programs playing at a race track would be incentive enough to get back together.

"I think everybody that lives in Texas would love to see them play again. It’s a crime they don’t," Gossage said. "That would be a perfect game for us, because that’s a special one. That was one you always looked forward to. Maybe to revive it, something like this would help."
I mean, why not? Right?

Texas refused to play anymore. I prefer the Aggies continuing to schedule high profile games around the country such as playing UCLA in the Rose Bowl next year.

A group of people should start an investment fund, build a gigantic fricking stadium that hosts mega neutral site games throughout the year, premium only. Then we can stop with this shite.

If they plan on using the existing seating, it would be even worse sight lines than the Bristol game. Bristol is a 1/2 mile track; Texas is 1.5 miles.

People would need to be issued binoculars with their tickets for that one.
