A Burning Desire

It has been 19 years since bonfire collapsed and if the University had it their way it never would have been built again. Fortunately the tradition has been carried on off campus.

Bonfire is constructed by hand. Trees are Cut with axes, shouldered out of the Woods to tractor paths, hauled to Load Site by tractor, shouldered again and loaded onto trucks, and transported to Stack Site where they are unloaded and sorted.  Why lead with a story about bonfire instead of immediately talking about one of the greatest games in history?  Because to understand Texas A&M you must know bonfire is the undying flame of love that every loyal Aggie carries in their heart for the school.

Although A&M …

Habit of Winning

It is a testament to Aggie spirit that 97,000 plus fans packed Kyle Field to watch Texas A&M take on the University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) on a chilly Saturday evening the week before Thanksgiving.

UAB arrived as a top 25 team with one loss. In the past these types of teams have proven to be A&M’s Achilles heal.

It took less than 20 seconds for the Aggies to score and they never looked back. The Aggie defense had no problem with the UAB offense.

LSU Makes A Statement With Win Over 2nd-Ranked Georgia

BATON ROUGE, L.A. — It had been 1,449 days since LSU students had last stormed the field in Death Valley. That cause for celebration came in 2014 when the Tigers upended the then 3rd-ranked Ole Miss Rebels by a score of 10-7.

On Saturday the cause for celebration came from a 36-16 win against the 2nd-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. Students poured out onto the field in celebration as the play clock hit zero and the Tigers saw their playoff hopes survive for another week.

LSU Coach Ed Orgeron led his underdog team on to the field with a game plan to “be as aggressive as (we) can, take shots, go for it, and play to win the game the whole time.”

Tulane Falls to LSU in a Major Sport for the First Time in 1,064 Days

It had been 1,064 days since LSU had beaten Tulane in football, basketball, or baseball. That was until Wednesday, March 21st.

LSU freshman A.J. Labas was a bit wild at the beginning of the first start of his career, hitting the first two Tulane batters of the game, but he settled down and Tulane could not cash in on the golden opportunity. Tulane did strike first, however, knocking Labas around for four runs on four hits by Acy Owen, Grant Witherspoon, Kody Hoese, and David Bedgood in the top of the third. Unfortunately for the Green Wave, it would be all they would get for the rest of the game.

LSU chipped away at the lead by scoring one run …
