The Texas A&M Aggies and the Texas Longhorns go into the final installment of the Lonestar Showdown unranked and slim chances towards making the NCAA tournament.
The Texas A&M Aggies make their return to Reed Arena on the national stage as they prepare to face-off versus their rival Texas Longhorns in the second installment of the State Farm Lone Star Showdown. While bragging rights and trash talk will commence between two rivals that won't play each other in conference play any longer, the profile of the game would be higher if either team were ranked. Moreover, both teams look to be on the outside looking in for the NCAA tournament in March. Can either team recover and get back in the race? It starts on Monday night for the rebirth.
