Texas A&M Arrives in Montgomery for Game with Auburn


By Ashley Thompson

"Now on a regular Friday night at a home game, there'll be anywhere from 40 to 50 thousand at this midnight yell." Paul Gardner explained.

There may not be 50 thousand tonight at the Sandbar, but the Aggies faithful are sure to come out.

The 'Midnight Yell' was recently featured in an ESPN commercial. The tradition dates back to 1913, when Texas A&M was an all-male military school.


Texas A&M has arrived for the big matchup tomorrow. But in just two hours, fans of the Aggies will be screaming - literally.

Supporters of the Aggies traveled a long way to make it to the River Region. For some, it was their very first time in Montgomery.

"We drove from college station to Houston, got a flight to Atlanta, changed planes and came here." says A&M supporter Tina Gardner.

Tomorrow A&M will play Auburn in a critical SEC matchup. But tonight, all Aggies fans are most excited about is their traditional 'Midnight Yell' - something that draws a big crowd back in Texas.
