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:I mean, why not? Right?
... 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."
