W. Soccer: No. 9 Texas ready for No. 7 Aggies

Texas players celebrated on the San Antonio turf as the Aggies stood by, conquered. For the second year in a row, the Big 12 championship was coming back to Austin.

Six days later, Texas overcame the College Station crowd for the first time in its history to knock A&M out of the NCAA Tournament. A series dominated by A&M for over a decade finally became a rivalry.

Now, after three grueling encounters last season that determined the fate of the Big 12 and both sides’ national title aspirations, No. 9 Texas (7-0-1) plays host to its historic rival Friday night at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

“People get more pumped up for this more than any other game,” senior defender Kasey Moore said. “It’s a rivalry game; there is no other way to describe it.”

The enthusiasm is expected to generate a record — or near-record — crowd at Myers, whose highest-ever attendance stands at 5,440 for an early season game against No. 1 North Carolina in 2000.
