The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band has never lost a halftime. Once you see the band in action, you’ll understand why it is one of the most well-known university bands in the country.

Aggies don't cheer — they yell. And Yell Leaders are the ones who energize fans at Aggie gamedays and other events.

Every song tells a story, and Texas A&M’s school songs tell what it’s like to be an Aggie and about the shared pride we have in our university.


12th Man

One Aggie's willingness to step up and help his teammates inspired one of our most well-known traditions, the 12th Man.

The night before each home football game, Aggies head to Kyle Field for Midnight Yell to get hyped up for gameday and practice yells.

Once every football season, Aggies make sure to wear maroon T-shirts to form a sea of maroon in Kyle Field. Proceeds from the sale of shirts go toward scholarships and other needs.

Rooted in Tradition

Texas A&M's traditions unite our current and former students, build camaraderie and foster the Aggie Spirit.
