Kyle Field student section: Not just the kids in khaki!

My wish is for everybody watching the game today to know that A&M is a huge university, mostly non-military, and that almost half of the stadium you’re looking at is filled with current A&M students.

I love the Corps – my Dad and my little brother are CTs – but we have one of the very largest and most active student sections in the country, and I’m proud of that!

So here’s a size comparison between Texas A&M’s student section and the top five “best” student sections in college football.

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.
