COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - The maroon and white are back at Kyle Field hosting the New Mexico Lobos for a morning game set at 11 a.m. College Station grocery store Brookshire Brothers is ready to cater to every type of fan on game day with items and services they may need morning, noon, and night.

You can grab breakfast before, drinks and food all during the game, and grab some lunch afterwards

Pregame

On the big day, the grocery store will open its doors at 6 a.m. At this time, fans can also start parking at the site. Parking on game day will be $40 for the whole day, but fans will receive a $20 Brookshire Brothers gift card for in-store items.

“We offer parking, so you can either stay here and watch the game on our big screen or you can walk over to Kyle Field,” said Sarah Beth Oelze, Stage 12 Event Coordinator.

Free parking will be provided for store customers who are just stopping by to shop.

Beyond groceries, the store will have Aggie merchandise and hot food on site. Football fans can easily grab anything their heart desires from breakfast tacos to fried chicken. Coffee and other beverages will be available at Brookshire Brothers Brews.

In-game

Not only is Saturday a big day for the Aggies, but it’s an important one for Brookshire Brothers, too.

Brookshire Brothers will be celebrating its 100th birthday that day, and will be throwing a birthday bash with cupcakes for guests from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Oelze adds Brookshire Brothers will also be serving food all during the game at its watch party, too.
