Oklahoma football: Cotton Bowl rematch a historic rarity
The OU-Texas A&M Cotton Bowl will be an important factor in some Ph.D. student’s future dissertation on conference realignment psychology. The Sooner-Aggie showdown, in the year after their separation, is historic.
When schools leave a league, hardly ever do they keep playing any opponent from the previous conference. Long-time ties are broken quickly.
Texas refuses to play A&M. Kansas refuses to play Missouri. No matter where you fall on that debate, know that that’s the norm.
I looked at every major-conference shift of the last 40 years and found only a skeleton list of continued rivalries.
