Aggies’ Red-White-and-Blue-Out September 22, 2001

The first game for the Aggies after the 9/11 terrorist attacks was a memorable one. From the article on Wikipedia:  Be sure to click on the picture of the crowd in the stadium for a larger view of it. Pretty amazing. I would post the photo for you myself, but it is copyrighted, and there are many restrictions on its use.

on September 22, 2001, the first game for the Aggies after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the students organized a “Red, White and Blue-Out.” Students assigned each deck a different color (red on third deck, white on second deck, and blue on first deck) to wear for the game againstOklahoma State. Despite the short notice, attendees followed the instructions, resulting in a red, white, and blue stadium. More than $150,000 was raised in shirt sales, which was donated to FDNY charities.[21]
