South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp earned high praise from the masses for his SEC spring meetings appearance, largely because of one comment.
"I think that A&M and Texas should play, personally," said Muschamp, the former Longhorns' defensive coordinator. "I think that's a great college football game that we've gotten away from because of conference changes and things that have happened. That's a great game. Having been a part of it, it's a wonderful game."
Texas and Texas A&M have met 118 times, the ninth-most of any rivalry despite not playing since 2011, the Aggies' final year in the Big 12. Neither university has expressed a strong desire to renew the series and there are no indications they plan to do so — or even plan to discuss the idea.
In honor of Muschamp's comments, here are five other annual series we want to see.
Michigan vs. Notre Dame
Michigan and Notre Dame announced the renewal of the rivalry with a home-and-home series in 2018 and 2019. Though it's a step in the right direction for teams that met every year between 2002-14, it needs become an annual series.
After 104 games over 117 years, the Backyard Brawl was put on hiatus after West Virginia's one-point win in 2011. The schools, separated by just 75 miles along I-79, both left the Big East and have not played since.
Not many non-Kansas or Missouri fans care about either team at the moment, let alone the once-legendary Border War. Still, it's a big-time rivalry that needs a rebirth.
The teams haven't played since 2010 but their 117 meetings still rank 10th all-time. Missouri has said they'd like to play again, though Kansas has not said publicly if they'd be interested.
Nebraska and Oklahoma combined for 47 conference titles and nine national titles between 1959-2010.
They've met 86 times, most recently in the 2010 Big 12 Championship, Nebraska's last Big 12 game before jumping to the Big Ten. While the series ended with five Sooners' victories in six games, it was a legendary back-and-forth for five decades.
Alabama vs. Ohio State
This one is the most selfish and makes the least rivalry sense.
Alabama and Ohio State have played just four times and only once since 1995. However, they're led by the two best coaches in the game, have lost a combined 13 games since 2012 and represent the gold standard of college football.
