M football rivalry will move back to its traditional Thanksgiving slot for the next two years.
The longtime Thanksgiving event was moved to the day after in 1996. The switch back accommodates a Thanksgiving night ESPN broadcast, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said Monday.
M have played on Thanksgiving 60 times in a rivalry that dates to 1894.
M coach Mike Sherman said. ``This tradition-rich rivalry between two great universities deserves this type of exposure. I am hopeful we can keep this date for this game in years to come.''
