Users of the game will be able hunt for Pokemon within the confines of Kyle Field from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Aggies are just another school to open up their stadium to the users of the video game sensation.
The invitation to the stadium may be a way to keep people from breaking into Kyle Field or committing other unlawful acts to capture Pokemon. There was already one Pokemon Go related incident at Texas A&M on Tuesday.

Nebraska will also be opening up its stadium to users of the mobile app on Thursday, while Ohio State made it a point to mention there are now Pokemon in its stadium.
Guys, you don't need to jump the fence to catch Pokemon at the stadium.
We'll let you in on Thursday.
