Maroon & White Game

Maroon & White Spring Football Game on Saturday with Legends Game (see roster) at halftime. Kyle Field gates open 3 p.m.; kickoff is 4 p.m. No tickets required except in the premium area (suites, clubs and loge).

Clear bag policy in effect.

Admission is free for this first chance to see new head coach Jimbo Fisher on the Texas A&M sidelines. The Legends flag football game at halftime will feature Johnny Manziel ’15 and many more. This Maroon & White game, unusually, will be played like a conventional game with traditional scoring and no scripting of plays.

After the game, fans will be able to walk down onto Kyle Field. During the game, concession stands will be open, offering limited food and beverage options.

Tailgate spots are not available until Saturday morning; the Friday “land grab” won’t be in effect.

Kids’ Yell will be at 2:45 p.m. on the east side of Kyle.
