UH & Rice forgo pettiness to continue football rivalry post split


When Texas A&M bolted the Big 12 for the SEC, a scorned University of Texas made it clear it'd make no room on its schedule to continue one of the best rivalries in college football.

So a more than 100-year rivalry is dead — perhaps forever

Thankfully, the University of Houston and Rice University are showing that such pettiness doesn't have to be standard operating procedure. For the Cougars and the Owls will continue their city rivalry after UH leaves Conference USA for the Big East in 2013.
