COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Kyle Field is home to the SEC's attendance record. The site of No. 3 Ole Miss vs. No. 14 Texas A&M drew 110,633 on Saturday night and marked an SEC single-game record. It also was the most people to ever attend a football game -- college or pro -- in the state of Texas.
The previous SEC attendance record was set at Tennessee's Neyland Stadium in 2004, when the Volunteers hosted Florida. That game, a 30-28 Tennessee win, drew 109,061.
The record came in the Aggies' third game in their partially redeveloped home. Kyle Field is currently undergoing a $450 million renovation scheduled to be complete prior to the 2015 season. The first phase of the project was completed just before the Aggies' home opener Sept. 6 against Lamar, and the second phase will begin after this season.
Once the redevelopment is completed, Kyle Field will seat 102,512. The stadium currently lists a capacity of 106,511.
The Aggies' attendance victory didn't translate to one on the field, and Texas A&M lost 35-20.
