Whatever historical similarities may exist are somewhat irrelevant now. We have dominated the states around us in football thru the last 3 decades. Texas, Mississippi and Alabama. And Horns are up next.

One could argue that Texas and LSU are about as similar as it gets in terms of history of ups and downs, NCs, importance of football to the state/school. Reflected in the fairly even head to head. Texas had the advantage of being the dominant program in it's conference for decades, the SWC.
