Arkansas fans are pumped to be hosting the old Southwest Conference foes, and an afternoon downpour didn't stop the tailgate festivities.
"I went to school here in the 80s and remember Texas A&M playing here and this is a big game," says Brent McGruder. "I was hoping the weather wouldn't do this, but here we are."
The first Fayetteville match up in 23 years will also be the last. The series will continue in Arlington until 2024, so the Aggies made a strong showing in the Natural State on Saturday.
"It's a one time shot to come up here and see what it's all about," says Kyle Hunter. "We've been here since Thursday and we're having a great time riding around on the scooters, which seems to be the deal in Fayetteville."
Even the biggest rivals get served up some of the best food in Northwest Arkansas, with a side of Hog hospitality.
"We feed the opponents when they come by," says Donny Cook. "We've met some great people."
"I've met several Aggie fans," McGruder says. "They're good fans and they've got a good following, and so far they've been kind. I don't know about after the game on Dickson Street, but we'll find out."
Win or lose, the fans are happy to be sharing the love of the game.
"It's a party atmosphere," Cook says. "It's kid friendly, the kids can come out here and have a good time, and the adults can too."
