Texas head coach Charlie Strong says plans are underway for the Longhorns to play Texas A&M again, according to Anwar Richardson of Yahoo! Sports.

“They're trying to work something out right now where we're going to play the Aggies,” Strong told those in attendance at the Touchdown Club of Houston.

A University of Texas spokesperson did not confirm Strong's comments as they said no specifics have been discussed for the schools to play each other, Richardson reports.

The series came to a halt when Texas A&M left the Big 12 Conference to join the Southeastern Conference before the 2012 season.
