Tailgate Texas Style

Tailgating is taken very seriously at Texas, and the hub activity is on Martin Luther King Blvd., the road that separates the UT campus from downtown Austin and the capitol. Tents, grills and lawn chairs line the drive, with many tailgaters set up in the parking lot near the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. But tailgates will be set up all throughout campus. 

There is RV tailgating East of I-35 in the lots off Comal Street. Here you can start your tailgate real early, but you must reserve a spot. For more info go here.

No matter where the tailgate is there’s certain to be good food on the grill – chicken, ribs, brisket, sausage, burgers and good ‘ol Texas fajitas – and welcoming fans ready to share eats and swap stories about the Longhorns. 

Besides the tailgate scene, popular spots nearby for fans include Posse East and Scholz Beer Garten.
