The social institution that is the Texas-Texas A&M rivalry in the Lone Star State took longer to hit its stride in softball than it did in most sports, but it doesn't take Aggies and Longhorns much time to make any competition meaningful.
Which is one more reason the mood will be decidedly bittersweet when two teams with 25 native Texans between them square off for the final time before Texas A&M departs for the SEC and the hottest of rivalries sinks into a cold war.
Softball starts the final meetings between the Aggies and Longhorns. The softball series plays the opener in College Station before finishing in Austin with games Saturday and Sunday.

Watch the opener on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. CT or on Watch ESPN.
