In a state where football is practically religion, and its massive universities serve as Saturday congregations at the altar of pigskin… perhaps no school has more loyal followers than Texas A&M. The Aggies averaged 103,622 fans per game in 2015 (third most of any school in then nation). Their “Gig ’em!” slogan is part of the daily language in College Station. Instead of male cheerleaders, they have “Yell Leaders” who incite the crowd to shout their brains out during games at Kyle Field. Watching the fans sway at the end of the Aggie War Hymn, causing the entire upper deck of Kyle Field to move, is one of the most awe-inspiring sights in collegiate sports. Gig em!
