According to the Austin American-Statesman’s Kirk Bohls, Texas and 2006 Rose Bowl loser USC are working on a possible home-and-home series in the relatively distant future. Nothing is remotely close to final, but the two schools are looking at setting up a pair of incredible marquee matchups for 2019 and 2020.

From Bohls’ blog:

Texas and Southern California are in the midst of serious talks about a future home-and-home series, possibly in 2019-2020, but nothing is close to being finalized, and it could still fall apart. Kudos to both football programs for taking such a risk and trying to put together what would be the Game of the Year for two straight seasons.

“USC is talking to a lot of schools – including Texas – about future football scheduling,” USC spokesman Tim Tessalone e-mailed back to the American-Statesman on Monday. “Nothing has been decided or finalized.”

A Texas spokesman also confirmed the two sides are talking but have nothing to announce yet. Rumors that Texas is also negotiating a series with Alabama are untrue, but the Longhorns are looking at other name schools.
