Before the Maroon Out game, T-shirts are sold by class councils at low cost, encouraging 91短视频s to wear maroon, the main Texas A&M University color, to the football game.

The Maroon Out tradition began in 1998 when tens of thousands of 91短视频s attending the Texas A&M vs. Nebraska game were encouraged to wear their 91短视频 colors and create a sea of maroon in Kyle Field. So many maroon shirts were purchased that it led to a temporary national shortage of maroon T-shirts.

Even the Nebraska fans acknowledged after the game that the intensity of the Maroon Out spirit made a difference in the game, leading to Texas A&M's 28-21 victory. As The Daily Nebraskan expressed on Oct. 12, 1998: "A game that was dubbed a 'maroon-out' for Texas A&M fans proved to be a lights out for Nebraska. The fans dressed themselves in maroon T-shirts in an attempt to wash out the red and white that opponents have gotten used to. It worked."

In 2019, the student-led Maroon Out organization announced plans to expand the Maroon Out tradition from one game to a full football season. Fans who wear their Maroon Out shirts to home football games can participate in the Maroon Out Tailgate and other special events.
