In addition to hosting the Auburn Tigers, Texas A&M is also hosting SEC Nation and Marty & McGee, which will go live in front of the MSC on Sat. Nov. 6 at 8am.

Thousands of dedicated Aggies assembled once again in Kyle Field for Midnight Yell Practice, this time as the Aggies prepare to play Auburn. The Yell Leaders were joined by both the women’s and men’s basketball teams, as they asked the 12th Man to come out to Reed Arena and support the Aggies outside of Kyle Field. Coaches Buzz Williams and Gary Blair were both in attendance. The Aggies and the Tigers kickoff on Sat. Nov. 6.
