12th Man to celebrate football season nationwide

via Twitter @TAMUYell

The first Midnight Yell of Texas A&M’s 2021 football season will take place on Sept. 3 at Kyle Field, however Aggies traveling to away games will also have the opportunity to attend Midnight Yell on the road. 

As football season approaches, Texas A&M students and fans have the opportunity to become even more involved as the No. 6-ranked Aggies prepare to settle last season’s unfinished business.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the football season last year, causing away-game Yell Practices and All-Aggie Tailgates to be canceled. As part of the university’s return to normalcy, those exciting activities are back for fall 2021.

Midnight Yell is an A&M tradition where the Yell Leaders lead A&M fans in practicing yells and singing The Aggie War Hymn to boost morale the night before a football game. 

For home games, Yell Practice is held at midnight at Kyle Field the night before the matchup, while away game Yell Practice is held at 10 p.m. the night before at specific locations near where the Aggies are set to play their opponents.

“We have some great locations set up for Yell Practices thanks to The Association of Former Students,” Head Yell Leader Memo Salinas said in an Aggie Network press release, “We’re ready to share a great football season with you, the 12th Man.”

Students and fans are also invited to attend other away game activities, including All-Aggie Tailgates and meetups with fellow Aggies at planned “Headquarter Spots” the day before kickoff.

The purpose is to bring Aggies together, even in out of state locations, and show the spirit of the 12th Man, Salinas said.

A&M has five away games on its schedule this year at Colorado, Arkansas, Missouri, Ole Miss and Louisiana State.

On Sept. 11, the maroon and white will kick off its on-the-road schedule against Colorado in Denver and finish it in Baton Rouge against Louisiana State on Nov. 27.

Underclassmen have yet to experience Aggie football in full swing, and although away games do not compare to 100,000+ fans in Kyle Field, they still allow them to act as an integral part of the 12th Man. Away games also offer an opportunity for Aggies to share their traditions with different college fanbases outside of their own.

Below is a full list of all away games as well as A&M Headquarters, Yell Practice and tailgate locations:
