CSE hosts tailgate before Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss game

ole missA little rainy weather could not dampen the Aggie spirits at the CSE Tailgate, which preceded the Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss game this past Saturday. Current and former students, advisory council members, faculty and staff all enjoyed barbecue and fellowship in Spence Park before the 2014 Maroon Out game at Kyle Field. Aggies who attended the game set the Texas and SEC record for game attendance, as 110,633 fans came to watch the battle between No. 3 Ole Miss and No. 14 Texas A&M.

“This was my first tailgate event and college game," said Dr. Aakash Tyagi, professor of practice in the department. "Both served as examples of the fervor that I always used to hear about for such events. I had family visiting from Louisiana and after sumptuous food at the tailgate and seeing the Aggie pride and identity reflected in everything from the Tailgate and the March-in, they were converts before the game even began."
