McGee Looks Back Over Storied Rivalry

Aggie hopes for 3rd upset against 'Horns

It's near the end of Stephen McGee's last season at Texas A&M quarterback.

Looking back, he says he'll mostly remember the bonding.

McGee has played a central role in the last three games against archrival Texas, guiding the Aggies to upsets in the last two. But his senior season has fizzled after he sprained his throwing shoulder in the second game, and he's unlikely to see much action when A&M (4-7, 2-5 Big 12) plays the fourth-ranked Longhorns (10-1, 6-1) on Thanksgiving Day.

Even if he doesn't throw another pass, his A&M legacy is already cemented by how he's performed in the historic rivalry.

In 2005, McGee made his first start and held his own against Vince Young in the Longhorns' surprisingly hard-fought 40-29 win. In 2006, McGee ran for 95 yards in the Aggies' 12-7 win in Austin. In 2007, he threw for a career-high 362 yards in A&M's 38-30 victory at Kyle Field.

McGee says no single play stands out from the games. Instead, it's the faces of his teammates at pivotal moments that McGee says will stay with him long after his playing days are over.
