Neyland Stadium's time at the top over? Reports say Texas A&M's stadium will be bigger

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- A Heisman Trophy winner, an 11-2 season, and a projected Top 10 ranking to start the 2013 season are all big things for Texas A&M less than a year after officially joining the SEC, but what the school has planned next is even bigger.

The Houston Chronicle and others have published leaked information showing the planned $425 million expansion that the Aggies have in mind for their football stadium Kyle Field, and the makeover is designed to make a splash, not just to Texas A&M fans, but to the rest of their new conference brethren - while thumbing their nose to in-state nemesis Texas - as well.

Reports last fall indicated that the expansion would push the stadium to an official capacity of 103,500, which would make Tennessee's Neyland Stadium - with an official capacity of 102,455 - second in the SEC.

The Chronicle's report said that no one would comment on the record about the designs, but that the renderings, seen in their entirety here, were accurate.
