Sabine River Rivalry at Reliant?I was reading in the Chronicle about the Texas A&M-LSU rivalry renewing again tomorrow, and it occurred to me that, now that TAMU is in the SEC, there is the potential for a new annual rivalry to match Texas-OU game in Dallas at the Texas State Fair every year. Has anyone considered a similar game in Houston at Reliant for the annual TAMU-LSU game? Obviously we're somewhat similarly between College Station and Baton Rouge. And we could build our own festival around it like the Texas State Fair (although probably on a smaller scale). The tourism potential is huge. And I'm sure there are enough alums of each in Houston to make it a very big and profitable event for the schools (worth giving up a home game every other year).
Anyone know if this idea has been floated or the schools approached? And if you know anybody at Reliant or the GHCVB, please pass this along. A Sabine River Rivalry at Reliant has a lot of potential for both the city and the schools.
