COLLEGE STATION, Texas -

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.

A statement Wednesday from the school in College Station 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 told of it at 10:50 a.m. and flashed the initial "Code Maroon" message at 12:25 p.m.

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