This loss will dog A&M forever
Cedric Golden, Commentary
COLLEGE STATION — They waved their white towels. The stands swayed.
The Fighting Texas Aggie band marched and gave a symbolic sawing off of the Horns to their delight.
By halftime, the scoreboard read 16-7 and the SEC-bound Aggies were preparing for a late Thanksgiving celebration with Longhorn on the menu.
Then the second half happened and finely carved turkey with all the fixings turned to slop.
Another game and another second-half collapse in College Station.
Except that this was not another game. It was the 118th and final conference meeting of two fierce rivals. Texas got the last laugh Thursday and millions of laughs over the next 118 years. After Justin Tucker’s 40-yard last-second field goal split the uprights like a dagger through 88,000-plus hearts at Kyle Field, the reality set in. The Aggies blew another one and this time, the other McCoy did it to them.
Texas 27, Texas A&M 25.
