COLLEGE STATION -- Any Aggie fan will tell you they think A&M has the best fans in the country.

Case and point? This weekend fans camped out so they could be first in line to buy tickets for the Texas Showdown.

A&M looked more like a camping site than a university this weekend as students made sure they got tickets to the last Aggie-Longhorn game.

A&M junior, Hope Voegele said, "There were literally no more places available for tents. I know there was a pop up camper and I know there were people hanging in trees so people have been here a lot."

Since A&M is moving to the SEC next year, students tell us the Thanksgiving Day game has never been more important than it is now.

"I wouldn't miss it for the world and you know it's the last one so you have to go big and do it right. It's worth sleeping out here for three nights," said junior, Rhys O'Farrell.

Students told Fox 28 they waited in line for over an hour and some even camped out since Saturday. They say that they're missing tests and classes just so they can get a pair of A&M - Texas tickets.

"Yeah so it's definitely worth the wait. I'm missing class right now, but it's worth the wait," said senior, Abel Bocanegra.

Only seniors got to pull their tickets today so some students still have plenty of camping to do.

"We're probably going to be sitting in line at 5 am in the morning and raincoats whatever we need, we're going to be there. We're going to get our tickets. We're going to do whatever it takes," said Hope Voegele.

Students will continue to pull tickets all week but if you don't have one yet, you're out of luck because all non-student tickets are already sold out.
