American Airlines Center is putting together a watching party for Texas football fans interested in checking out the Longhorns' game against UTEP on Saturday night. Kickoff is 9:15 p.m. and the party in Dallas is free. Fans can begin gathering as early as 8:30 p.m., although seating is limited.
The ESPN2 telecast will be shown on the $30 million video boards in AT&T Plaza, outside the south end of the AAC. The boards offer a 1,500-foot HD picture in the center of the AAC’s façade.
Fans are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs to maximize seating options. American Airlines Center is offering free parking in the Platinum Garage on the east side of the arena. Fans may bring coolers to the party but no alcohol is allowed to be brought in. Concessions will be available for purchase at the watching party.
