    aTm's Kyle Field

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Probably the most exciting thing to do in College Station happens roughly 6 or 7 times a year. It is watching 80,000 maroon clad fans squeeze into Kyle Field to watch their Texas A&M Aggies play college football.

    To put this in perspective, while I lived in Melbourne, Australia, two professional Australian Rules Football teams would average 35-40,000 fans, and there would be no where near this much support in team colors.

    Tickets to the game average about $35 dollars, and there really is not a bad seat in the house.

    Equipment: Bring a water bottle, some sunblock, and go enjoy college football!

    Sophia Young of Baylor at Reed Arena

    One of the nicest new arenas in Texas is in College Station, and is home to the Texas A&M University Basketball teams. In January, I had the pleasure of attending a game in Reed Arena, and watched the Baylor Bears defeat the Texas A&M Aggies.

    This arena holds 10,000 plus, so it is also used for various other events such as concerts and other school ceremonies.

    The arena is named for Houston veterinarian Dr. Chester J. Reed, a 1947 graduate of A&M, and his wife, Billie Jean. In 1986, the Reeds contributed 265 acres of undeveloped land west of Houston to the university, forming the nucleus of assets used to fund the facility.
