Texas A&M University officials are investigating a bomb threat at Kyle Field that prompted officials to issue a "Code Maroon" safety advisory and close the stadium and nearby buildings.

An A&M statement Wednesday says the football stadium and adjacent buildings that were evacuated will remain closed for the rest of the day. The evacuation displaced about 700 people.

A&M says the threat was written on a wall of a nonacademic campus facility. Officials were informed at 10:50 a.m., flashed the "Code Maroon" message at 12:25 p.m. and gave the "all clear" at 7:10 p.m.

Another bomb threat Wednesday prompted officials at Navarro College to close its campus through Thursday. The 10,000-student junior college in Corsicana is 50 miles south of Dallas and 100 miles north of College Station.
