America's Best College Football Stadiums
Glen Johnson, Texas A&M
Kyle Field: College Station, TX
The Texas Longhorns may be the state’s most renowned football program, but nobody does Saturday afternoon in the fall like the folks in College Station. With Texas A&M’s long and strong Cadet Corps tradition, its games are akin to military academy sporting events. Aggie students, collectively known as the “12th Man,” stand for the entire game. The 400-strong Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band—all of them cadets—is the world’s largest military marching band and known for its intricate precision drills. Midnight Yell pep rallies are a student staple before every home game.
