Baylor fans who wanted to snub the Aggies into perpetuity will soon be out of luck.
After a two-year layoff due to conference realignment, Baylor will resume its series with Texas A&M in men’s basketball next season, an athletic department source confirmed Tuesday. It’ll mark the first meeting between the Bears and Aggies since the 2011-12 season, A&M’s last in the Big 12 before departing for the SEC.
It’s been said that time heals all wounds, and apparently enough of it has passed to rekindle the longstanding rivalry. The teams have played 205 times since 1914, with A&M holding a 127-78 all-time edge in the series. Scott Drew’s Bears have won the last five meetings, three of which were decided by seven points or less.
The contract for the series has not been finalized, the source said. But Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com reported that it will be a two-year, home-and-home series, with the Aggies traveling to Waco Dec. 9 of this year, followed by Baylor heading to College Station the following season.
