The Texas A&M Football team has been proving its worth on the field over the past few seasons, earning a 27-10 record in the past three years. Specifically, the Aggies have gone 15-3 on their home turf during that time span, marking one of the best records in all of college football in recent years.
That said, the Aggies’ stadium often goes overlooked in discussions about which college football home field reigns supreme. You’ll hear names like Husky Stadium, The Big House, and The Horseshoe thrown around, but rarely does Kyle Field make an appearance on lists like that.
This could largely be due to the fact that the Aggies haven’t seen a particularly impressive level of dominance in their home stadium before Jimbo Fisher’s arrival. As mentioned, in the past three years, that changed. And with that change could come an entirely different outlook on Kyle Field among national rankings.
The Texas A&M Football team’s success could turn Kyle Field into an all-time stadium
When it comes to fan engagement, the Texas A&M Football program has to be considered one of the top listed teams. The Aggies have one of the most passionate fanbases in the entire country, and with Jimbo Fisher leading the charge, things are heating up even more in College Station.
While the Texas A&M Football team struggled to gain traction at home prior to Fisher’s arrival, Kyle Field is now one of the scariest places to play in college football.
By capacity, the Aggies have the fourth-largest stadium. The only three teams above them are all in the Big Ten, giving Texas A&M the most menacing home field in the SEC. That said, Tennessee is breathing down its neck with around 300 fewer seats for fans to occupy. Behind them? LSU and Alabama, each of whom are within 1,000 seats.
Right now, Kyle Field is easily a top-5 stadium in the country. The only thing holding it back in the eyes of national media is the fact that Texas A&M hasn’t been nationally relevant in a long time. Expect that to change, as Jimbo Fisher is set to make this team an annual contender for the College Football Playoff.
With it, Kyle Field will become one of the most feared stadiums for opposing teams.
