AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas has a new rival. Or make that an old one.

With the breakup of the annual Texas-Texas A&M rivalry after more than 100 years, the No. 18 Longhorns will face Big 12 newcomer TCU on Thanksgiving night in a renewal of an old Southwest Conference grudge match.

Although the Longhorns (8-2, 5-2) and Aggies could still meet in a bowl, the annual rivalry ended last season, Texas A&M's last in the Big 12.

Texas has played on Thanksgiving 75 times dating to 1895, including 64 games against the Aggies. Texas wanted to keep its holiday game tradition and the Big 12 served up TCU (6-4, 3-4) this year.

The Horned Frogs and Longhorns have played 82 times, but just once since the breakup of the old Southwest Conference in 1995.
