Tennessee fans traveled west to Texas A&M in great numbers for Saturday’s matchup between the two Top 10 teams. Not only did they get a great game, they also got a great reception from the Aggie family.
“A&M fans easily the class of the SEC,” read one post on Volchat in a Scout.com roundup that said, “Social media and message boards were full of high praise for the Aggie fans.”

“Fantastic fans. If you paused for too long outside a tailgate, they just invited you in to enjoy some food and drink.”
“I think at least 50 people walked up and introduced themselves to us.”
Another reaction, from Twitter:
Saturday was the first time A&M and Tennessee had ever played each other on home turf (they met in bowl games in 1957 and 2005). They won’t meet again for a regular-season game until 2023, when the Aggies make the trek to Tennessee.
It’ll be good to see you, friends.
Hear the roar
The Aggie crowd was friendly, but it surely wasn’t quiet. Here’s what the winning interception sounded like from about half a mile away:
