Tens of thousands of fans pour into the Brazos Valley for every local football game and with them comes millions of dollars being spent on anything from local eateries, bars, hotels and gas stations. So what would happen to those businesses if A&M decided to host a football season out of Brazos County while Kyle Field was being renovated?

Some of those questions may be answered Tuesday morning at the Hilton as the Bryan-College Station Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau unveil the results of an economic study they had done by consultant group Oxford Economics.

They estimate this decision could incur massive losses to local businesses,households and government.

The study will be unveiled at 10 AM. Meanwhile a spokesperson for Texas A&M says no decision on how to proceed with Kyle Field renovations will be made before October.

News 3 will live stream the presentation on KBTX.COM
