At long last, we finally get to see the Texas A&M Aggies face off against the Texas Longhorns on the football field. There just so happens to be an ice rink on top of said field. On Sunday, Jan. 5, the Aggie and Longhorn club hockey teams will play a one-hour exhibition game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, on the same ice that the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators played on for the NHL’s Winter Classic on New Year’s Day.
