Here’s what you need to know today:

- If you are thinking about road tripping to a college football game, make sure to not only tailgate responsibly, but also make sure to get a handle on your Google Maps route. At the Aggies’ last home game, a fan was arrested at Kyle Field after thinking he was in Arlington for the Texas Tech game.
