HOUSTON – The Longhorn-Aggies rivalry is renewed, just not on the gridiron.
The University of Texas and Texas A&M University will go toe-to-toe on the hardwood during the upcoming college basketball season, according to TexAgs.com.
The upcoming non-conference game for the two Texas schools will happen on Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth. Dickies Arena is a new venue that seats 14,000. It's scheduled to open in November.
The last time the teams played each other was in the 2017 preseason in Houston as a part of a charity exhibition game supporting Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. UT won the game 73-69.
Last season, both teams missed the NCAA Tournament, but the Longhorns won the NIT Tournament.
The Aggies hired Buzz Williams as their head coach this offseason.
