On Saturday, Texas A&M will host its first game in the partially-renovated Kyle Field as the longtime home of the Aggies undergoes a $450-million redevelopment project.

They'll play in the stadium this season, starting with Saturday's home game versus Lamar, then after this year is complete, the west side of the stadium will be renovated and the fully redeveloped Kyle Field will be unveiled in time for the 2015 season.

The new east side of Kyle Field is virtually complete and on Thursday, we got a sneak peek of the inner workings of the Aggies' new digs. Here's a glance of what's been done so far:

A look at the new facade and one of the activation towers on the east side of the stadium:
Inside the redeveloped east side are completely new concourses with new concession stands:

And here's some of the food you can get in those new concession stands. Chicken fried hot dogs? Yes, sir!

The new suites are quite impressive and SEC ready. All 14 teams helmets in the kitchen/bar area of the suites:

In Texas, the summers (and the falls) are hot and humid. So fans will have access to a "cool zone" which is refreshingly cool upon entry:

Of course, the most important part is the inside of the stadium, where the action really happens. Here's a look at the stadium from the inside:

Breach! Bama flag flying at A&M stadium

Alabama is seemingly everywhere these days -- and not just on the recruiting trail.

Look what was found recently at the construction site of Texas A&M's Kyle Field, which is undergoing a massive expansion and renovation project.

The picture was taken over the weekend and we're told the Alabama flag has since been taken down. But will the passionate Aggies fan base stand for this grievous breach of home territory? At least one fan on Twitter playfully vowed revenge on the Crimson Tide.


Aggies begin SEC transformation

April, 12, 2012
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M promises that Yell Practice will still be held at midnight. Reveille, the Aggies' mascot since 1931, will always be a collie. The students will continue to stand throughout the game, symbolic of the 12th Man ready to enter the game.

After that, however, all bets are off.

There's a new coaching staff with new schemes for the players. There's a new building under construction. There are new windscreens on the fences that line the practice field. They share a trait with the new shirts on sale at the bookstores. Who knew that a blue circle with yellow letters that spell "SEC" went so well with maroon?

Everywhere you turn in Aggieland, there's a football program in transition.

All head coach Kevin Sumlin has to do is look out the windows of his third-floor office in the Bright Football Complex. At eye level last week, Sumlin could watch workers building the roof of the $9 million player performance center, the new football-only weight room that will be sweat-ready Aug. 1.
