Texas A&M

Capacity: 82,600 (expected today: 87,000)

Student: 31,000 (pulled for this game: more than 30,000)

Red: Student body   Khaki: Priority seating for Corps of Cadets students, Corps seating starts with Section 140. The Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band is the dark-brown block at the front of the Corps block.
