Will Texas and Texas A&M be Required by Law to Play Football?
Guest author: Christian Dennie, Esq.
Following Texas A&M University’s (“A&M”) departure to the SEC, sports fans all across Texas missed out on the annual University of Texas (“Texas”) v. A&M football game. There is no certainty whether the game will be played again, at least in the near future. As a result, State Rep. Ryan Guillen of Rio Grande City introduced a bill seeking to require the two universities to compete against one another. House Bill 778 does not indicate when the game would be played, but does offer penalties levied against the institution refusing to play in the annual game. The restriction recommended is the loss of athletic scholarships.
