Football Fever Growing In Aggieland For Alabama Away Game

By  | 

The biggest game of the Texas A&M football season is set to kick off Saturday afternoon at 2:30 when the number 15 Aggies take on top-ranked Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

All 6,000 tickets of A&M's allotment from Alabama have been snatched up.

But you can bet a lot of the bars and restaurants around Bryan-College Station will be jammed at game time.

In College Station Sully's Sports Grill & Bar is planning on Aggie Football fever filling their business.

The 55 TV screens to choose from should help too.

The game will air on KBTX, so you can watch at home or at a bar or restaurant.

"We're gonna have happy hour 11 to 7. So we're expecting a big crowd in here to come see the game, I mean I can't think of a better place, 55 flat screens, we'll have the game playing all over the place all day," said Johnathen Pesqueira, Assistant Manager at Sully's Grill & Bar.

"We're gonna dominate," said Annalyse Escalante, a Bryan Resident and Texas A&M Former Student.

Sully's sign outside also says, "Go Johnny Go B-T-H-O Bama" and, "Honk If You Are The 12th Man."

This is expected to be the biggest match-up for the Aggie Football team of the season.

Saturday's game against Alabama is at 2:30, and you can see it right here on KBTX.

Cody Coil and the sports team will have highlights Saturday night on News 3 at 6 and 10.
