Though the Horned Frogs are traveling to Utah this weekend, fans won’t have to travel far to cheer on the team.
Nearby restaurants plan to offer a host of specials watch parties for Frog fans this weekend, and the game will even be broadcast in residence halls through a special negotiation with the university’s cable provider.
An on-campus organized watch party is being hosted by HyperFrogs in 1873, student activities adviser Brad Thompson wrote in an e-mail. Sodexo will provide free chips, salsa and tie-dying outside 1873 before and during the game.
Off-campus hot spots like Buffalo Brothers, the Aardvark, Old Rip’s and the Pour House, near west 7th street, will show the game and provide game day specials.
Buffalo Brothers daytime manager Christi Harbour said the restaurant offers $3 “horny shots” and pulled pork specials on game days.
Old Rip’s daytime manager said his restaurant will show the game and offer a buffet during the game.
While the university does not receive the CBS college sports network on analog televisions, negotiations with the university cable provider made it possible for the university to receive the channel for game day purposes, telecommunication coordinator Patti Sellers said.
Sellers said the university will receive CBS college sports network for this weekends game only against Utah on channel 50.
