For the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies, more than bragging rights are at stake Sunday.
Texas and Texas A&M are scheduled to meet at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Neb., on Sunday afternoon. This is Game 378 of the Texas-Texas A&M series. The two rivals have never met in the College World Series, however.
Since both teams lost their first games in Omaha — Texas was beaten 7-3 by Notre Dame on Friday, while Texas A&M was on the wrong end of a 13-8 decision against Oklahoma — this is a game eliminatory. The winner will play another playoff game on Tuesday afternoon. The loser will not play baseball again until 2023.
