For the die-hard fans looking to score a ticket to the massive college football showdown between the Texas Longhorns and LSU Tigers, you might be out of luck. The game is officially solid out. Of course, you can go pay an absurd amount to get in on the secondary market, but that’s a tough price to pay for a seat way upstairs at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.
So, the University of Texas has come up with an amazing solution and you can be part of a cool experience. There’s now an official Texas-LSU Watch Party at Longhorn City Limits presented by ATX Design.
The LCL is on the LBJ Lawn by the stadium on campus — where ESPN’s College GameDay will be on Saturday morning — and fans can watch the primetime game on a big screen.
The best part? It’s free to get in.
Basically, this is going to be one massive tailgate that extends well beyond the 6:30 p.m. kickoff on ABC.
Texas-LSU Watch Party Schedule
Not only are fans allowed to bring folding chairs and blankets to sit on the lawn, but Stubb’s BBQ, the Deep Eddy Lounge, and more drink stations will be available. Alcoholic beverages will be sold until the end of the third quarter, according to TexasSports.com.
As if the Texas Football and LSU Football game wasn’t big enough, the party in Austin just got even bigger.
Here’s the LBJ lawn schedule for September 7 for fans:
5:30 a.m.: Pit access opens for ESPN College GameDay
