COLUMBIA, SC - Thousands of Aggies descended on the South Carolina Capitol Thursday morning for a long-standing Texas A&M tradition.

Midnight Yell is traditionally held the night before a game. When the team travels, Texas A&M Yell Leaders organize a yell practice somewhere near the away game site. Thursday's game is being played at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, the state's capitol.

Yell leaders organized the practice on the steps of the Capitol building.

Thousands of Aggies, young and old, gathered at Midnight Thursday. They weren't alone. Several hundred Gamecock fans and students also attended and tried to shout down the Aggies. Their efforts weren't very successful.

Despite the loud exchange, both sets of fans kept their cool.

The Aggies and Gamecocks are playing each other for the first time Thursday evening. They are also going to be the first televised game on the new SEC Network.
