ARLINGTON - AT&T Stadium was flooded in hues of maroon and cardinal as Texas A&M took on Arkansas in the Southwest Classic Saturday afternoon.

The match-up marked the first event at the stadium since a fan fell over the railing two weeks ago during the Texas-UCLA game.

On September 13th, 48 year old Kevin Imes fell about 15-feet from his section onto the suite below. He was transported to JPS Hospital, but is now back at home recovering.

It was the first incident of its kind at the five year old stadium. When inspected, the railings at AT&T Stadium were shown to be over four inches higher than code requirements.

Most fans at the game didn’t seem too concerned about their overall safety. They were all focused on the football.

On the field, Texas A&M staged a big fourth quarter comeback to force overtime where they topped Arkansas 35-28. The #6 team in the nation remains undefeated.
