TEXAS — The "Fightin' Texas Aggie Band" and Texas' "Showband of the Southwest" recently received yet another national recognition, as the world renowned bands have been included in a top ten list of “The Best Marching Bands for 2011-12,” compiled by The Huffington Post.

“Marching bands are awesome,” Huffington Post writer Anna Susman wrote in the article. “This invaluable part of the college football experience gets the crowd amped up, and generates competitive spirit between the two schools battling from supremacy. The following colleges have nurtured marching bands that always impress, always excite and always showcase their full talent.”

While the list does not give specific rankings for each school, the Aggie Band is displayed as the fourth band and Texas first in a slideshow presentation on the Huffington Post’s website.

The bands joins other university marching bands such as LSU, the University of Tennessee, University of Southern California, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Florida A&M University, University of Notre Dame and West Virginia University.
