PHOTOS: Kyle Field expansion is underway at Texas A&M
The $450 million expansion and renovation of Kyle Field has begun, just days after hosting the final home game of the Aggies' season.
It's widely assumed that after leading Texas A&M past Mississippi State Saturday, Johnny Manziel has played his final home game at Kyle Field. But even if he returns, Manziel won't play in the same Kyle Field as the one he's known for two seasons.
A&M has wasted no time beginning its $450 million, two-year expansion and renovation of Kyle Field, one that will eventually bring the stadium capacity to 102,500. Reporter Sam Khan Jr. tweeted photos of crews getting to work the same night at the win over the Bulldogs, and Texas A&M itself has since provided several photos of the substantial progress made since.

By all appearances, it's going to be a special venue. But there's also going to be plenty more photos of dust, smashed concrete, ripped seats, and more dust between now and the finished product.
