The Red Raiders are headed to Norman for the big game against OU, and that means local businesses are gearing up for the influx of fans here in Lubbock wanting to catch the game. And an away game means local sports bars get all the business from Red Raider fans who don't want to miss a second of the big game tomorrow.
If you're not headed to Norman, here locally the restaurants and sports bars have you covered. And places like McGilligutty's are preparing for a great business weekend.
All season long the crowds have been great for the restaurant. The manager here tells us they've stocked up on supplies and staff for tomorrow.
They have nine Tv's, plus a 106-inch HD projection screen that you can see from the whole building so you won't miss a play.
But along with a great football seasonm, comes heavy crowds. So you've got to get there early.
Mike Stelzer, McGilligutty's Manager: "Capacity right now i think is 300 inside, and the last few saturday's we've hit capacity early in the evening and had to do one in, one out."
