Riding a wave of success, unprecedented ticket sales and a move to the Southeastern Conference, Texas A&M is planning to almost completely renovate Kyle Field, perhaps landing the Aggies at Reliant Stadium as early as the 2013 season.

As part of the Texas A&M stadium renovation, plans include razing the east- and west-side bleachers and building a multi-deck enclosure on the South side of Kyle Field. The storied stadium would be enclosed by multi-level bleachers on all four sides, capacity would increase to 95,000-plus and numerous suites and multi-use facilities would be included.

Texas A&M 12th Man Foundation chairman Neal Adams outlined a number of renovation possibilities to TexAgs.com this week, including building an entirely new Kyle Field on property West of where the current stadium sits.

If the current stadium is renovated, coach Mike Sherman’s plan for a multi-use South end zone football facility and major upgrades to Kyle bleachers are included in the plans, meaning the Aggies would have to play at least one entire season – either 2013 or 2014 – away from their College Station home.

Planning remains in the very early-stages, but also apparent is that Reliant Stadium – home to the Houston Texans – would be integral to any renovation plans.

It is unclear to what degree Texas A&M officials have had discussions with Reliant Stadium representatives regarding the possibility of playing an entire home season in Houston.
