While the action and tailgating at Kyle Field on Saturday may be your top priority, don’t miss out on everything else that’s happening the rest of the weekend. Whether it's your first Texas A&M game as an Aggie fan, or you’ve made the journey to cheer on the visiting team, expect to be treated like a local. Use this guide this weekend to catch all the events, discover the local cuisine, and experience all that Bryan College Station has to offer!
After a day of traveling into town, head to your hotel to check in, relax, and get prepared for a night of Aggie traditions and fun!
For a variety of dinner options, visit Century Square to satisfy your appetite. From burger bars, such as Hopdoddy, to pubs like Mo’s, and Itialian street food at Piada, this area has restaurants that everyone will love!
After visiting one of the restaurants, at 7:00 PM find a spot on The Green at Century Square for Maroon Tunes to enjoy live music, lawn games, and drink specials. This free event offers a place to relax before heading to Kyle Field for Midnight Yell.
Join 25,000+ fans in Kyle Field as they come together to practice various A&M yells and hear fables from the Yell Leaders at Midnight Yell. Whether you’re an Aggie or visiting fan, everyone is welcome and it’s a tradition you don’t want to leave College Station without experiencing!
To join in on the nightlife fun in BCS, head over to Northgate, College Station’s main entertainment district. Spend time on The Corner’s rooftop patio with one of their $7 Maroon Koolaids or visit Duddley’s Draw for a $9.25 domestic pitcher.
Brunch is essential to help you power through the midday kickoff, so head to The Village Cafe in Downtown Bryan. Here you can savor the locally sourced food and the quaint atmosphere of this part of the city, all while enjoying one of their seasonal flavored mimosa pitchers.
Gameday Festivities begin at 12:15 PM with the Texas A&M team Spirit Walk. Line Houston Street and watch as the The Nationally Famous Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band leads the team to Kyle Field.
90 minutes prior to kickoff at 1:00 PM, all 2,500+ members of the Corps of Cadets will step into formation, marching from the quad to the Fan Zone before entering Kyle Field. We encourage you to spend some time watching this tradition and see what makes Texas A&M so unique!
We all know tailgating is a must before entering the stadium. If you’re looking for an area to do this head to the Pepsi Fan Zone, the Clayton W. Williams Jr. Alumni Center, or walk around Spence Park in search of an inviting group of tailgaters!
With a 2:30 PM kickoff we suggest entering Kyle Field around 1:45 PM. This will give you enough time to navigate the stadium, find your seats, and watch the flyover and team entrance. Check out our Aggie Gameday Survival Guide here for more helpful tips!
