Although it was not available except for on-campus showing, it is currently being marketed: http://secure1.esportspartners.com/store-aggieLocker/main_detail.cfm? nProductID=8176&sAuxTitle=We''ve%20Never%20Been%20Licked%20DVD

I saw this movie several times during my college years at A&M, usually at "The Grove", now long gone itself. Viewing was mandatory for incoming Corps freshmen. I have a VHS copy of the movie, but it is now also available on DVD.

Victor Mature, being interviewed by Johnny Carson, was asked what his worst movie was. Without hesitation, he replied: "I don't remember the name, but it was about some cow college in Texas."
