COLLEGE STATION -- With all the hype surrounding the Aggies, the University's football tickets have never been more in demand than they are now.

In fact, the game this Sunday is sold out for the first time in the school's history.

Kick-off is just days away and as students line up to get their tickets for the opening game, they're finding that this year they're a little harder to come by.

Student, Colton Williams said, "Like with all this talk of the sec that's like creating more interest and with such a good year last year, everyone is wanting to go to these games now. "

For the first time in Aggie history, student ticket options have been suspended, meaning some won't get to go to the games.

"I tell you, it's a great problem to have that we've got a lot of excitement coming off the great football season last year," said Alan Cannon, Texas A&M's associate athletic director.

The school raised the number of alloted students seats this year by about 1,500 and even that wasn't enough but not every student is surprised by the sell-out.

"Last year we did so well and so tickets are in high demand so more people are wanting to go to the games," said student, Michelle Carsons. 

Students have been waiting in long lines all week just to get their tickets and they say it's all worth the wait.

"To me it personally means that it's time to stand up and support your team. It's a feeling you can't really beat. It's an amazing feeling that you don't want to pass up," Colton Williams said.

If you aren't one of the 30,000 students that have tickets, don't worry just yet. You still may get the chance to head to Kyle Field on game days.

"If there are tickets that have not been pulled, then on Fridays they would go on sale even to those students who may not have been able to purchase an all student football or sports pass," said Alan Cannon.

If you do have tickets for a game this year, expect record-breaking crowds because the only remaining tickets are those not used by visiting teams.
