SEC fans are crazy, going all-out on game days – even at 12 a.m. Texas A&M hosted its first Midnight Yell Practice of the season at 12 a.m. this morning, which is something the school will do before every home game.
The event was clearly a hit, as over 43,000 people showed up to Kyle Field early this morning and all of them were jam-packed into one side of the stadium. Some FBS schools don’t even possess a stadium that is supposed to seat 43,000 people in its entirety.
43,000+ Aggies at the first #MidnightYell of the season?

Texas A&M kicks off its 2016 season at 3:30 p.m. EST today when the Aggies host No. 16 UCLA. Despite not being ranked, the Aggies are considered three-point favorites. The crowd may have something to do with that.
