We’re thrilled to see it featured in our national ad airing during the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and non-conference games. “
The northeast entrance to Kyle Field will open at 7 p.m. Filming will begin at sunset and could last several hours.
The first 1,000 fans through the door will receive a free special edition Texas A&M t-shirt. The university has also promised all of its attendees free food and refreshments, though it encourages fans to bring unopened bottled water and snacks.
The university asks participants to wear Aggie clothing or school colors. Clothing should not have obscene content or large logos unrelated to the university.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older, otherwise they must come with a parent or guardian.
Free parking is available on campus at Lot 62 and West Campus Garage
