Fear no fork

A big football game requires a big pregame meal. Everyone knows that. Conner McQueen, a quarterback for Texas A&M, is prepping for his team's big showdown against Arizona State Saturday night with some hearty bacon and eggs.

Seems normal enough, right? But look a little closer. McQueen is using a spoon instead of a fork to chow down on his delicious breakfast. Seems a little odd, until you dig a bit deeper.

"Fork 'em" is Arizona State's patented chant during all football games based on their Sun Devil logo and mascot. Maybe it's not good to be superstitious, if you're Texas A&M. But it can't hurt to be a little stitious.

McQueen, to his credit, is a trendsetter. Aggies fans followed along with his #FearNoFork campaign, too.

The Aggies take on the Sun Devils Saturday in Houston at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
