Cobwebs were present on many of the bleachers inside of Kyle Field.

The first Yell Practice of the 2020 football season started at midnight and was available on live stream. The only Aggies in Kyle Field were the yell leaders, the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band and Parsons’ Mounted Cavalry. The Texas A&M football team is set to kickoff against Vanderbilt on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m.
