A student must hold a sports card, an all-sports option or football-only option to purchase tickets to away games.
Students who have not purchased the all-sports or football-only ticket options also may do that at the ticket windows at the north end of Kyle Field. The all-sports option is $325 and the football-only option is $199.50.
Monday is the standard day for seniors and graduate students who have the sports card option to pull tickets for the Aggies' season opener against New Mexico on Sept. 5 at Kyle Field. Juniors follow on Tuesday, sophomores on Wednesday and freshmen on Thursday.
Also, A&M graduates from 1999-2009 can purchase tickets to the New Mexico game at half price. There is a limit of four tickets.
