HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The Owls and Aggies will renew an old Southwest Conference Rivalry when the two meet in College Station to kick off the season August 31, 2013.

Rice Athletics Director Rick Greenspan was pleased to announce the agreement and looks forward to seeing the two teams on the field.

“Rice and Texas A&M have a deep tradition on the football field and we are excited about the chance to renew this series next year,” said Greenspan.

Rice won the first meeting between the two schools back in 1914 by the score of 7-0. Since that time, the Aggies have taken a 50-27-3 lead. Greenspan has stated his feelings in the past on the importance of in-state rivalries that are long-time traditions.  This one certainly falls in that category.

“I hear from so many of our fans who relish the memories of those great games in our history and I know how much it will mean to them to once again make the trip up to College Station to see us play.”

The two schools last played November 9, 1995 at Rice Stadium. Texas A&M won that victory, 17-10.
