The Aggies finished their last home game of the season in style Saturday, as they beat Mississippi State 51-41. It was a particularly special game; as it was the last game football players competed at Kyle Field before it undergoes massive changes.
The University wasted no time, as News 3 watched as pallets of the grass field was removed and the goal posts were taken down just hours after the game. A&M officials said Kyle Field drew a record 697,000 fans in its final season before the $450 million redevelopment.
The University contracted Fortex Grass...who said they were happy to work through the night.
"It's a lot more simple than you'd think our machine does all the work we have a couple of guys who pack the pieces onto the pallet itself they drive over and I think it should take us about 12 hours to get it all off," said Fortex Grass employee Mark Graf.
According to Fortex Grass, a total of 115 pallets of grass was sold. fans were scheduled to pick up their pallets Sunday morning.
