COLLEGE STATION -- Even though A&M's football season doesn't kick off till Sunday against the SMU mustangs, Aggie fans are already getting in the mood for this season by proudly wearing their school colors and showing off their school spirit.
For the past week or so the Aggies have been on everyone's mind with talk of leaving the Big 12 and joining the SEC but now that we're two days away from the start of the season, fans have turned their focus to Sunday's game.
"I just got the chills thinking about the fact that football season kicks off this weekend," said student, Rebecca Reyes.
Patrick Ivey, senior yell leader said, "It gives me butterflies just thinking about it."
In honor of football season A&M is showing off their maroon and white by participating in college colors day.
"Seeing people walk around campus, celebrating college colors day, wearing their maroon and white, it's definitely perfect," said Reyes.
Senior yell leader, Patrick Ivey, couldn't agree more.
"Last year at college colors day A&M was the most represented university and I think that really says a lot about how we're doing things here and the special place that Texas A&M is," Ivey said.
And it's not just the students showing off their Aggie spirit.
With all the talk of a conference move, Aggieland Outfitters already created SEC apparel to show their support.
Katelyn Horner, with Aggieland Outfitters, said, "We have t-shirts currently and what we're still expecting are coozies, flags and youth shirts is the new thing we'll be getting in as well as some other gear."
While some may be showing off their new SEC gear this weekend, Ivey said it's the Aggie spirit and tradition that makes A&M the greatest.
"There's a lot of high expectations and hype and a lot of really good energy about this upcoming football season that I think is really going to help us to be number one in representation for college colors day this year," Ivey said.
