HISTORY SECTION VIII • HISTORY kYLE FIELD HISTORY/TIMELINE Regarded as one of the nation’s most intimidating road venues, Texas A&M’s Kyle Field has been the home of the Aggie football team since 1905. The Aggies have always been tough to beat at Kyle Field with an all-time record of 380-149-19 (71.1 winning percentage) on their home field. Likely making Kyle Field an even tougher road venue for opponents was the $32.9 million north end zone expansion, which was completed in 1999. The formation of the Bernard C. Richardson Zone raised the capacity of Kyle Field to 82,600, making it at the time the largest football stadium in the state of Texas. The Zone opened at full capacity for the first time for the annual Texas A&M-Texas grudge match in 1999 and a state-record football crowd of 86,128 watched the Aggies tally a hard-fought 20-16 victory over the arch rival Longhorns. The stadium record has been broken five times since the 1999 game and currently stands at 88,253 (Texas, 2007). Kyle Field was named for Edwin Jackson Kyle, who served as Texas A&M’s dean of agriculture and athletic council president. Kyle donated a 400 x 400-foot area of the southern edge of campus that had been assigned to him for horticultural experiments. The permanent seating on the east and west sides of Kyle Field were added in 1927 and the horseshoe was completed in 1929. The stadium was expanded in 1967 to include two decks of grandstands, and the third decks were added to the east and west sides in 1980. The Aggies played on grass through the 1960s, but A&M became one of the many schools that switched to artificial turf in the early 1970s. Grass returned to Kyle Field in 1996 and the Aggies currently play on grass. The most recent improvement was the “12th Man TV,” which is the huge video board in the south endzone. The 3,954 square-foot screen is the second-largest in collegiate sports and measures 54-by-74 feet. Included in the project, which was completed prior to the 2006 season, were 1,130 feet of ribbon board and a concert-quality sound system. 132 2011 TEXAS A&M FOOTBALL MEDIA SUPPLEMENT kYLE FIELD TIMELINE Spring 1905 .......
