2. Facilities

At FSU Jimbo can’t get a $60 million dollar football-only facility. Texas A&M already has one, and has shown the willingness in the past to do what is needed to keep the head football coach happy and to keep the Aggies in line with the rest of the college football world.

Though nothing can beat the power of relationships, facilities are a huge recruiting advantage. Besides the Bright Football Complex the Aggies have Kyle Field, the biggest football stadium in the state of Texas.

Kyle Field has a capacity of 102,733 and while not every game is a sellout, every Aggie game has more fans in attendance than a Florida State game. The average attendance in 2015 (the most recent stats available) for the Aggies was 103,622. That was good for third in the nation behind only Michigan and Ohio State. The most fans ever at a Texas A&M game is 110,633 for the Aggies game against Ole Miss.

Doak Campbell Stadium has a seating capacity of 79,560. That’s smaller than Kyle Field was before renovations. The average attendance in 2015 for the Seminoles was 73,219, good for 20th in the nation.
