Basketball is sneaking up on us, gang. A&M hosts Maroon Madness at Reed Arena on Oct. 27, and the first game action hits in an exhibition tilt against St. Edwards on Nov. 4. The season officially begins on Nov. 11 in the home opener against Northwestern State.

Our basketball content begins in earnest next week. Until then... let’s all hunker down for one of the biggest A&M football games in recent memory. See you guys on the other side.
