Last year, current Missouri QB Kelly Bryant was starting for the Clemson Tigers and went into Kyle Field to take on the Texas A&M Aggies.

Though the Tigers ended up winning that game, it wasn’t easy — maybe their toughest game all season long. Bryant definitely noticed the atmosphere in College Station.

At SEC Media Days on Monday, Bryant said playing in that game taught him what the SEC was all about:

If that’s the case, Mizzou owes the Aggies a big thank you. Bryant won’t get to make a return trip to College Station this fall, but he will get to check out Georgia’s Sanford Stadium and Arkansas’s War Memorial Stadium, among others.

Now, Bryant will try to create some noise of his own for his new team of Tigers.
