Midnight Yell

The first Midnight Yell was held in 1931, in front of the YMCA building, before the University of Texas game, with railroad flares stuck into flower pots to light the area. In the present day, students flock into Kyle Field the night before every home game to prepare for the next day. The Yell Leaders lead the crowd in the University's songs and tell fables about how the Aggies will beat the hell out of their opponents. "A lot of people think we have a joke bank that we pull from, but that's not true. We hear a joke or know a joke from growing up," Busch said.
