For an esteemed university with deep agricultural roots, this Texas Bowl loss has to hurt.
No, it wasn’t the football game between Kansas State and Texas A&M that the Aggies lost– that’s still yet to be played. It was the Texas Bowl’s annual Rodeo Bowl where the Aggies suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Wildcats.
Kansas State’s crew laid claim to the championship belt by winning the calf penning, roping, calf ribbon pull, horse race and hay bale stacking competitions on Monday. Meanwhile, the Aggies did win the barrel man and goat milking competitions, so it was not a complete shutout loss.

All kidding aside, it appears as though the Aggies did have a good time during the Texas Bowl festivities on Monday. Now, Texas A&M fans just have to hope that things turn out better during Wednesday night’s meeting on the gridiron.
Texas A&M and Kansas State are set to kickoff at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Houston’s NRG Stadium. The Aggies will look to improve the SEC’s 1-1 bowl record after Monday’s mixed results (Mississippi State win, Vanderbilt loss).
