College football can't to erase the damage and death and injury tolls of Hurricane Harvey, but Texas A&M is hoping a few hours can provide a temporary reprieve from the devastation in southeastern Texas.
The Aggies and the 12th Man Foundation announced on Thursday that victims, first responders and volunteers can receive two free tickets to their first two home games: Nicholls on Sept. 9 and UL-Lafayette on Sept. 16.
"Texas A&M University has always stood ready to help when called upon, and the events in Texas and the Gulf Coast present another opportunity for us to lend a hand," said Texas A&M director of athletics Scott Woodward. "We want to provide a brief reprieve to all of those affected by this tragedy, as well as extend an expression of gratitude to all of the first-responders and volunteers that are working so hard to help the region return to normalcy."
