COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M University has repopened after calling an evacation and ordering all students, faculty and staff to leave campus Friday after the school received a bomb threat.

The evacuation order had been posted on the College Station university’s website as a ‘‘Code Maroon’’ warning. It directed those on campus to evacuate by foot immediately and to not use a vehicle. The school said all classes were canceled.

Texas A&M spokesman Lane Stephenson said the school received a call about the bomb threat at about 11:30 a.m.

Last month, telephoned bomb threats at the University of Texas at Austin, as well as ones made to campuses in North Dakota and Ohio prompted tens of thousands of people to evacuate. No bombs were found at any of those campuses.

LSU plays A&M at 11 a.m. in Collgege Station on Saturday.
