Texas A&M To Have Largest Seating Capacity in SEC
The Texas A&M Board of Regents has approved a measure to redevelop the Aggies’ Kyle FIeld, which will make it the largest in the Southeastern Conference.
Coming on the heels of their first year in the SEC and a Heisman Trophy Winner in Johnny Manziel, the project will take two years to complete and cost $450 million.
The seating capacity of 102,500 will be the third biggest in college football, behind Michigan (109,901) and Penn State (106,572). It will surpass Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium (102,455) the SEC’s biggest.
The project will begin after the 2013 season and is targeted for completion in 2015.
The Aggies will continue to play their home games at Kyle Field while the project is going on.
