COLLEGE STATION -- The 2012 school year hasn't even started yet and the first A&M game is still a week away but if you haven't purchased your season tickets yet or bought a student "football-only" pass, you're out of luck this season because both options have already sold out, and in record time.

The Aggie season opener is next week against Louisiana Tech and anticipation for the first game in the SEC is already building.

"We've been in the Big 12 for a long time so it's definitely time for something new," said A&M freshman, Steven Summers.

The first home game is September 8th against Florida but for students and fans who haven't bought their tickets, they'll have to watch the game from home instead of at Kyle Field because season tickets and student football passes are completely sold out.

"It's really not that shocking because we're heading to the SEC so everyone just wants to be able to come out and support the team," said A&M student, Andrew Wood.

Expecting an increased demand of tickets the athletic department allotted 128 more student passes this year, bringing the total number of student seats to 30,284 but it still wasn't enough.

Summers said, "I got my football pass pretty much last year, as soon as I got accepted because I knew they'd go fast."

And that's exactly what happened, selling out in record time.

"I don't want to say it's you snooze you lose but it really does suck for those who can't stand and be there," said Summers.

Students without football passes still have two ways to try and get those coveted tickets.

The athletic department says there is a limited number of three-game packages left for the Florida, South Carolina and Missouri games.

They can also try and get guest tickets on the Friday before each football game after the students with passes pull their seats.
