The Texas A&M Aggies are preparing for big things this season, which includes opening SEC play at College Station against the Florida Gators in the second game of the season. There's no doubt that Kyle Field will be rocking for the home opener.
The athletic department is planning to preserve that big home field advantage for the Aggies in the future, which means some type of renovation of the 95-year-old stadium, which can show its age when the stands are full. While the university is yet to finalize plans, one idea appears to be off the table, according to KHOU's Daniel Gotera.

Reliant Stadium has been talked about with regards to a possible temporary home for Texas A&M football.— Daniel Gotera (@DTGoteraKHOU) August 16, 2012
If Texas A&M doesn't play in Houston during the renovation, then they are looking at staggered renovation of Kyle Field or building an all new Kyle Field nearby so they can continue to play at College Station.
