In addition to being the final home game of the 2023 football season, today is also the 24th anniversary of the Aggie Bonfire collapse at Texas A&M. Somewhat shockingly, this is the first time that the Bonfire Remembrance has fallen on the same day as an Aggie home game.
In remembrance of this, the Aggie Field Staff have altered the 50-yard-line logo, adding a maroon ribbon to honor the 12 lives lost on Nov. 18, 1999.
On this somber day, I always encourage folks to take a moment to watch a video, read an article or do something to reflect on the events of 1999. For me, our own ChuchGBH shared an impactful story as an A&M student when it happened.
