Texas A&M

The Texas A&M Aggies compete in the West Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The SEC conference is a part of the NCAA Division 1’s Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Prior to 2012, the team was affiliated with the Big 12 Conference.

Known as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, the school was founded in 1876 and less than two decades later it formed its first football team. The area of campus known as Kyle Field was created in 1905. Currently, Kyle Field has a capacity of 102,733. The field was named after Edwin Jackson Kyle, the university’s former athletic council president. Aggie John David Crow secured a Heisman Trophy in 1957, followed by Johnny Manziel in 2012. Other notable Aggies include Yale Larry and RC Slocum. Texas A&M’s students became known as Aggies in the 1920s, but it didn’t become the official nickname until 1949. Students were previously referred to as “Farmers.” Students are also known as the 12th Man. Tradition holds that students stand during football games, ready to play in the game if they’re needed. Texas A&M rivals include the LSU Tigers.
