Texas A&M has banned tailgating for the first football game of the season on Sept. 26 against Vanderbilt, A&M President Michael K. Young said in a Faculty Senate meeting on Monday, first reported by WTAW.

According to the article, A&M Provost Carol A. Fierke said an official announcement will come later this week.

Last month, the SEC announced individual schools could make decisions regarding tailgating on their campuses. Eleven schools have since banned tailgating, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.

South Carolina prohibited the use of tents and will discourage fans from participating in tailgates, while Tennessee will allow tailgates only for those who plan to sit together in the stadium.
