Texas A&M was the first university in the state of Texas. Usually the 1st university in the state takes on the name: University of (Whatever). So along comes The University of Texas and claimed that name (and the prestige that came with it), leaving A&M in the dust. Hence the rivalry.

Their colors are different, too.

Texas A&M University was founded in 1871, 12 years before the University of Texas was founded in 1883. This has been a source of conflict between the two colleges, as A&M students are upset that a school founded 12 years later would title itself THE University of Texas.
