COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M fans cheered for the Aggies on Friday night and early Saturday at Kyle Field before the football team played the Missouri Tigers. The Midnight Yell is a tradition at the university before every home football game.

Texas A&M fans gather in the stands before the start of the Midnight Yell on Friday at Kyle Field. Midnight Yell is one of the best-known traditions at the university. The Yell Practice first began in 1913 when different corps companies would come together for a pep rally. The Midnight Yell is still used today to pump up fans for the next day’s football game.
