Texas A&M

So it’s going to be tough. But Aggie fans love a challenge. And bigger is better. That goes for their tailgates, as well. This is one school that can’t ban barbecue rigs. They roll in big enough to roast whole hogs, though beef is more likely to hit Texas grates. They’ve also got big traditions, including the 12-foot Aggie ring, the 55-foot bonfire and the largest military marching band in the world.
