Kyle Field listed among the best 11 venues in college football

·1 min read

The SEC is home to some of the best stadiums in all of college football. Among the top include Kyle Field, home of the 12th man. At least that is how Ivan Maisel of On3 sees it. In a recent list, Maisel listed the Aggies’ home as one of the 11 best in the country. Just four SEC stadiums made the list.

Kyle Field was built in 1927 and only held a capacity of 32,890 but it grew to over 40,000 by 1953. Today the stadium can hold 102,733 screaming fans on any given Saturday.

What Ivan Maisel Says…

Howdy, and welcome to Kyle Field, home of the Texas Aggies. There’s no hospitality like Aggie hospitality, just as there’s no college football weekend quite like a Texas A&M weekend. From Midnight Yell Practice on Friday night to the 12th Man standing poised to enter the game, from the white unis of the yell leaders to the military precision of the Aggie Band, from the way the Kyle Field actually sways when everyone – and I mean damn near everyone – sings the Aggie War Hymn, a game at Texas A&M offers plenty that you’ll see nowhere else.

The list for the SEC includes Bryant-Denny Stadium (Alabama), Jordan-Hare Stadium (Auburn), and Sanford Stadium (Georgia). The Aggies will make trips to the first two on the list in the 2022 season.
