FAMOUS TRADITION

Over 25,000 people regularly attend A&M's yell practice the night before games.

HEAD COACH SALARY

* Kevin Sumlin $2.436 million — Bob Stoops $4.55 million

This is Sumlin's first season at A&M; Stoops' base salary in 1999, his first season, was $600,000

NOTABLE 2013 COMMITMENT

* Texas A&M: DT Justin Manning (Dallas Kimball) — Oklahoma: QB Cody Thomas (Colleyville Heritage)

Manning is former Sooner defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger's brother, and announced the Aggies as his choice Thursday.

FAMOUS PROGRAM ALUM

* Texas A&M: John David Crow — Oklahoma: Sam Bradford

Crow won the Heisman Trophy as a halfback in 1957. He was the school's only Heisman winner until Johnny Manziel this year.
