THE DOWNLOAD: The Team That Saved the Tailgate

By Dateline Staff on January 22, 2019 in University

Picture this: It’s Saturday morning, Dec. 1, 2018. The Aggies are preparing to play at home in their first postseason football game since moving up to the NCAA’s Division I. Record crowds are expected not only for the game, but the pregame tailgate at the corner of Hutchison Drive and La Rue Road — field conditions, permitting that is.

Read how our grounds crew saved the day, in this story from Shawn Reid, communications intern, and Katie Hetrick, senior communications manager, in Finance, Operations and Administration.
