    Default Cove vs. Universidad Autonoma

    This is just plain bizarre. The Killeen daily herald reports that Copperas Cove's third non-district game will be against Universidad Autonoma De Nuevo Leon, a private school from Monterrey. I didn't know they played American football in Mexico. According to the paper, Cove will play Nuevo Leon at home the next two years. I just don't know what to make of this. Does anyone else know of Texas/Mexico football matchups?

    Allen played a team from Monterrey, Mx. the last two seasons.
    They were a pretty dang good team. I'm sure that the Mexican teams
    are trying to branch out and exposed their kids to "real" football.
    It can be a great expereince for your kids AND the community.

    Well ok, I hope this is a good team. I was very excited when I heard we would play SLC. Waco has been a given over the years but I believe if their program declines over the next few years with the loss of Tusa, they will no longer be a rival game for us. We thought we had Midland Lee who hasn't been to hot as of late but still a proud program, that fell thru. So unless this team from Mexico is good, SLC will be the highlight of our non-district play. Then onto what I still consider a weak district in 12-5A. I really believe we will have a good team this year, but little district competition to help us prepare for playoffs. We won't be able to gauge this year from last years team. I believe it will be very different and better. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Two of our threads in 2008 about the Prepa Tec of Monterrey game with Allen are:
    1) http://forums.5atexasfootball.com/sh...ad.php?t=33077 started 9/4/2008 and
    2) http://forums.5atexasfootball.com/sh...ad.php?t=37812 started 10/22/2008

    The Sports Illustrated links in thread 2 still work.

    Prepa Tec is mentioned in other threads including this one.

    Thanks for the articles Tulsa74. Now that could put a little pressure on the Dawgs. Of course this is the same country, different team. Trying to get up for this one.

    I know The Woodlands are playing a team from Mexico too. I might show up for that just out of curiosity. Anyone know the exact date of that game?

    Really?! That's news to me. This is the first time I've heard of such a thing. How does Texas usually fare against Mexican schools?

    Universidad Autonoma won there football league last season, in one of the toughest leagues in Mexico. So atleast they are a respected team in Mexico.

    Outcome will depend on the fire power each team brings.
    Mexico might have Texas out gunned.
