Texas A&M Midnight Yell: How to watch online

Texas A&M has a long standing tradition, the midnight yell. On the night before game day, at midnight, students gather at Kyle Field for Midnight Yell or Yell Practice. It basically is a pep rally and a chance for the student body to practice chants and yells before games.

Despite ESPN growing a Tim Tebow like infatuation with Manziel, they are doing one thing that is particularly cool. They’re going to air on ESPN 3 the midnight yell practice.

From the Yell Leader’s web page:

“It is the second year for Texas A&M in the SEC and because of this there is a lot of interest from other SEC schools. They want to see, first hand, some of A&M’s nationally recognized traditions, a great example being Midnight Yell.  This year is gearing up to be one of the largest Midnight Yell Practices in the history of Texas A&M as we rally together to show the Alabama Crimson Tide what we are all about.”

Date: September 13
Start Time: 11:55 p.m. CT (or 12:55 p.m. ET)
Location: College Station, Texas
Stadium: Kyle Field
Live Stream: ESPN 3 or WatchESPN App

Rumors are also abound that Johnny Manziel’s close friend Drake could be attending. Manziel even has an OVO tattoo on his wrist. OVO stands for October’s Very Own and is Drake’s record labels name.

As of right now Drake appears to be double booked with an appearance on Friday night’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” I hate to spoil the mystery, but those shows are usually recorded earlier in the day, which means that theoretically Drake could hop on a flight and make his way to College Station for the event.

For now, A&M seems content letting the rumor exist.

They’re also expecting a very large crowd. You should definitely take this opportunity to get a glimpse at one of college football’s great traditions.
