Junior Yell Leader Connor Joseph paces back and forth from the end zone to the 50-yard line.  This became a tradition when Peanut Owens was a Yell Leader. At this time, Yell Practice was held at the YMCA building. This building has very narrow steps, and Owens had very large feet. To keep his balance he would walk back and forth across the steps and the other Yell Leaders began to join in. 

The first Midnight Yell Practice of the 2017 football season drew thousands of current and former students into Kyle Field Friday night.  The Aggies will play Nicholls State Saturday at 6 p.m.
