Texas A&M Aggies Hold 12th Man Day, Pull Out All The Stops

When the Texas A&M Aggies host the Nebraska Cornhuskers tonight, they hope to have the crowd as a record-setting 12th man on the field tonight. The Aggies have dubbed today "12th Man Day," and as a result have added tickets to be sold available to members of the student body. The Aggies are attempting to set the record for most members of the student-body attending a college game.


Further, the game tonight will be a "maroon out" where the crowd is encouraged to wear maroon colored shirts. 


College Station usually provides the Aggies a good if not great home field advantage, and the school is really pushing that even further tonight as the Aggies look to upset the Cornhuskers. According to KBTX, all the tickets have been sold and a staggering 31,005 tickets have been purchased by students for tonight's game against Nebraska.


Kickoff is slated for 8:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM local time.
