Sporting Events at Texas A&M
The athletics program at Texas A&M is rich in both tradition and history, dating back to when the school was first founded in 1871. Become a part of history yourself when you cheer on the Aggies and join them in the tradition of the 12th Man. You'll soon see why Sports Illustrated has named Texas A&M the top gameday environment in college football.
The recently renovated Kyle Field conveys the rich history of Texas A&M through bold architecture and functionality with ample parking for dedicated fans to show their Aggie spirit via tailgating and other game day festivities. The stunning 36-acre site was developed around the bevy of unique Texas A&M traditions, including the corps march that begins on campus and passes down Houston Street before each game begins.
