Greetings from College Station

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Some things just don't mix. Namely, Midnight Yell Practice and an 11 a.m. kickoff.

I got a chance to stop by the Aggies' pregame tradition last night for a taste of what we'll hear for four quarters today when Texas A&M and Missouri kick off in about 90 minutes.

You won't find anything else like it in college football. When your team travels to College Station, you should check it out.

Missouri arrived at the stadium a little while ago without defensive end Aldon Smith, who wasn't expected to play, but was a late scratch from the team's travel list, according to the Kansas City Star.

We'll be chatting live here throughout the game, so be sure and check it out, in addition to the blog.
