UT and A&M could meet again on the football field a lot sooner than anyone thought—theoretically.
Today the SEC and the Big 12 announced an five-year agreement for the champions of both conferences to meet in a postseason bowl game.
The matchup will only occur if neither conference champ is selected for the new four-team playoff format. If that happens, another team will be selected.

The setup is similar to the one already in place between the Big Ten and the Pac-12 with the Rose Bowl.
