NCAA Football: UCLA at Texas A&M Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

PRAIRIE VIEW MORE LIKE creeping Houston sprawl view amirite. Our A&M friends from down the road will be visiting College Station tomorrow. Here’s hoping that the fans and their players have an unforgettable experience at our new digs. It’s a unique opportunity for them, and they’ve said as much. Here’s a little did-you-know on the match up courtesy of Brent Z:

  • Texas A&M and Prairie View A&M are the state’s two oldest public universities
  • Somehow, this is the first time they’ve played in football
  • Texas A&M is scratching off a $450,000 check to Prairie View for the pleasure
  • Prairie View averaged 45 points per game last year - leading the FCS

This is a really solid FCS team with a kickass band and I hope everyone has a delightful Saturday with no injuries and a comfortable Aggie W. Thanks and gig me.

GREAT ARTICLE ON PRAIRIE VIEW ON THE MOTHERSHIP. Our pal Bill Connelly took a deep dive into the Prairie View A&M program to discover how they built such a sound program after enduring the worst losing streak - 80 games - back in the ‘90s.

VON DOING VON THINGS. The NFL returned last night along with legendary Aggie and the best defensive player on the planet Von Miller. He wore these snowboarding boots on the field and still wrecked shop.

Have a great Friday, you guys. Wear sunscreen at the game tomorrow. Maybe drink a Greyhound.
