When it comes to Texas versus Texas A&M, everyone has a side.
The heated rivals are banding together this week though, in an effort to raise funds and support for the Rebuild Texas Relief Fund. So far, the Aggies are winning.
According to a graphic posted on Twitter by the Texas A&M basketball team, Aggies fans had purchased 61 percent of the ticket sales for the exhibition men’s basketball game Wednesday at Rice’s Tudor Fieldhouse in Houston.

“In the Lone Star State, there is nothing like a good sports rivalry to highlight our Texas pride,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott upon the game’s announcement.
As of Tuesday morning, the Longhorns were in danger of getting blown out in the pride department.
