As Texas A&M works towards its "official" transition to the SEC later this summer, the state of Texas will continue to morph and refine itself into a different shape from a national perspective.
The presence of both the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies in the state has basically forced a "divorce" where both sides aren't willing to budge an inch. Overall, the dominance that UT has been experiencing the past decade or so is finally being threatened by the boldness of A&M and their jump to the SEC.
Whether the Longhorns will be able to retain control is still undetermined, but the way things are going for each university right now, it looks as if A&M is making some progress. The Aggies' recruiting gains and future financial outlook in their new home has given many fans and analysts a positive outlook on A&M's future.
Now the entire state sits on the brink of the abyss. Both programs have multiple reasons why they will soon take over Texas in full, but neither has any idea which will emerge on the top of the mountain.
We take a look at five reasons why Texas A&M will win the war, bringing in glory and dominance to College Station for the first time in decades.
