In the wake of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play hockey outdoors at the famous Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas in early January, the Texas A&M University Ice Hockey team will face-off against their rival Texas Longhorns once again this weekend in their final game of the 2019-2020 season. Through conference play, the Aggies swept the Longhorns in their first two meetings in October of 2019, beating them 4-3 in Austin and then bringing home a 1-0 win in game two in College Station. Leading up to this final game of the season, the Aggies will be led by new head coach Derrek Harper, a former professional hockey player with an impressive resume throughout his hockey career as a player and as a coach. In his mind, Harper sees this as a turning point for the program and a chance to begin working towards an expansive growth of hockey at Texas A&M University.

In previous years, the spring rivalry game has been known for its sell-out crowd and fast paced hockey action. This year, along with the hype built up around the on-ice showdown, the team will see the appearance of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Yell Leaders and the Queen of Aggieland herself, Reveille, in attendance. With intermission games, a youth hockey spotlight, and a special first intermission senior night presentation, this game is one you do not want to miss. Come out, have fun, and let's BTHO t.u.!
