COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M University has decided to suspend its traditional pre-game bonfire to give officials time to improve procedures following an accident last year that killed 12 students.

``We will not have a bonfire this year,'' Texas A&M President Ray Bowen said Friday at a news conference. When the tradition does resume, in 2002 at the earliest, it will be much more professionally run, he said.
