A Legislator Is Trying To Pass A Bill That Would Require Texas And Texas A&M To Play Each Other

Really.

Everyone knows that people in Texas take their football very seriously. So it's no shock when you hear that a legislator has filed a bill to force Texas and Texas A&M to play each other in football legally. Wait, what?

Ryan Guillen, a Texas State Representative, has filed "HB 778", which would require the two schools to resume their historic rivalry on the gridiron immediately. This past season was the first in which the two did not play each other, a result of the Aggies' move to the SEC.

Whether or not the bill will be passed into law remains to be seen. While I'm sure this will make some football fans in the Lonestar State very happy, it's made others question if Guillen is focusing on the right things.

Moving along.
