Wow! UTSA Student Gets Swept up in Madness of A&M-Alabama After Finding a VIP Pass
This was an incredible day this was for this UTSA student in College Station last Saturday.
Alex Sunderland was in Aggieland for the Texas A&M-Alabama game and happened upon a VIP pass on the ground. What happened next was the experience of a lifetime.
Sunderland was there to attend a tailgate with the student group the Latina Aggies. At halftime, he found a random VIP pass on the ground. He picked it up and decided to head to Kyle Field and see where the pass would take him. According to MySA:
The security guard let him in with ease after Sunderland waived his VIP pass at him. Sunderland says the guard "didn't even check or scan it." Once he made it into the game, Sunderland stepped up his sneaky skills and managed to find first-row seats.
He pretended to be an A&M kicker recruit from Mexico and used his pass to get on the sideline. He managed to fool enough people with his story and got on the field when fans stormed the field after A&M won the game.
Later, Sunderland used his pass to get into the victorious locker room, mingled with the players, and even met Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher. He would finally admit that he was not a recruit and used his pass to get into the game.
"I felt bad so I had to tell them," he says. "They were cool about it and laughed. It was just a cool experience I'll never forget for sure."

I've been on the field many times at Kyle Field, but never after a victory over the number one team in the country. What a day this was for this student. I am jelly.
