College Station Texas
Home to Texas A&M, College Station is best known for its premier college football and basketball programs. Football crowds are notorious for their famous "twelfth man", a local tradition stemming from the 1920's, when a former football player was pulled onto the field to play as the team was down against the nation's top team. Today, this tradition of supporting the team is carried on by Texas A&M students who call themselves the Twelfth Man and are known for their boisterous team support.
