There will be a giant blow up screen to view the game, along with free popcorn and hot dogs to enjoy as TCU takes on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
“It’s going to be a really exciting environment,” student body vice president of operations Ryker Thompson said. “It’s just a great place to watch it. There is so much school spirit right there.”
The idea for the watch party came after first-year biology major Cole Weber, a Minnesota native, approached Thompson about using the movie screen from Milton Daniel for the game.
“I thought, how can we get the same excitement as a home game for an away game,” Weber said. “It’s fine to just watch it in your room, but a big group, that’s a lot of fun.”
In addition to the game watching and free snacks, Thompson said that TCU’s comedy group, Senseless Acts of Comedy, would be putting on a half time show in the BLUU auditorium.
“Being a part of the watch party is such an awesome opportunity for SAC to support the Frogs,” SAC co-president Nick Barnette said. “Even though none of us have what it takes to be a TCU football player, we like to think of our halftime performance as our small contribution to demolishing the Gophers.”
While there are currently no plans to expand this event to future away games, Thompson said that SGA is open to the idea.
“If it’s something that big and a lot of students come to this I think it would be really fun to see what we could do,” Thompson said. “We’re happy to look into more games.”
