Rattling bottle caps can be heard across campus in the week leading up to Texas A&M's football game against Arkansas. Back in Ol’ Army, when Southern Methodist University was a regular Aggie rival, fish spurs were worn to symboize that the 12th Man was ready to “Spur the Ponies.” With the transition to the SEC, the week long tradition of fish spurs is now reserved for the game against Arkansas.
