Kyle Field is the football stadium located on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. It has been the home to the Texas A&M Aggie football team in rudimentary form since 1904, and as a complete stadium since 1927. It is known as the "Home of the 12th Man". The seating capacity of 102,733 in 2015 makes the stadium the largest in the Southeastern Conference and the fourth largest stadium in the NCAA, fourth largest stadium in the United States, and the fifth largest non-racing stadium in the world. Within the state of Texas, Kyle Field has the largest regular seating capacity, while AT&T Stadium has a larger overall capacity.Kyle Field's largest game attendance was 110,631 people when Texas A&M lost to the Ole Miss Rebels with the score of 20–35 on October 11, 2014. This was the largest football game attendance in the state of Texas and SEC history.HistoryBeginningIn the fall of 1904, Edwin Jackson Kyle, an 1899 graduate of Texas A&M and professor of horticulture, was named president of the General Athletics Association. Kyle wanted to secure and develop an athletic field to promote the school's athletics. Texas A&M was unwilling to provide funds, so Kyle fenced off a section of the southwest corner of campus that had been assigned to him for agricultural use. Using $650 of his own money, he purchased a covered grandstand from the Bryan fairgrounds and built wooden bleachers to raise the seating capacity to 500 people.

  • This stadium takes football to a whole new level. It's nicer than any professional stadium we've ever been to and holds over 100,000 spirited Aggie fans. We came to town for the weekend and enjoyed...

  • Got to share in Family weekend with our son that included a scrimmage at Kyle Field. What an amazing experience. It can not be explained, it must be experienced. The field is beautiful and the fans bring a level of enthusiasm that is enthralling. Can't wait to go back.
  • Wow! Had not been back in 19 years and the place has certainly changed. The stadium is huge yet there is an intimacy with the team. Revamped and brings the old in with the new. Will be back.....
