Prairie View A&M University, commonly abbreviated PVAMU or PV, is a historically black university (HBCU) located in Prairie View, Texas, United States (northwest of Houston). The University is a member of the Texas A&M University System.
PVAMU was created as the "Separate but Equal" Agricultural and Mechanical college in the State of Texas, so it was made part of the aggy University System as part of the Texas Constitution of 1876.
2016 Football vs aggy
As a Historically Black University, aggy was probably going to have a few "incidents" as PVAMU rolled into town to play the aggy football team on September 10, 2016.
As usual, aggy did not pass up the opportunity. The following screen caps are from an unaffiliated Facebook page and presented without comment:
