Before the big game Saturday afternoon, Texas A&M recognized the lifetime achievements of a few good Aggie men.
Five former cadets were inducted into the Corps of Cadets Hall of Honor. Among the inductees was the Air Force's newest Chief of Staff, Gen. T. Michael Moseley.
A surprise addition to the program was Governor Rick Perry, who was inducted into the Corps Hall of Honor in 2002. He joined in citing the lifetime accomplishments of the new inductees.
"That's what this place is all about, to prepare young men and women to be leaders," Perry said.
Also honored were the late A.W. "Head" Davis, Class of '45; Clifford A. Taylor, Jr., Class of '49; James B. Kelly, Class of '52; and Lt. Gen. (Retired) Randolph W. House, Class of '67
The Corps Hall of Honor was established in 1993 to pay tribute to former corps members who have lived a life that exemplifies the Texas Aggie spirit.
