Been reading a book lately about the rivalry between The Longhorns and Texas A+M.

That is one heck of a rivalry, wouldn't automatically say it was the biggest but obviously the inter-state rivalry plays a huge role, particularly in a state like Texas.

Changing the subject slightly, but has anyone read Friday Night Lights, and is it worth getting?
