It’s football season, which means it’s time to hunker down with beer, food, and television screens. The UT Longhorns's first game against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs takes place on Saturday, August 31, and the NFL season begins on Thursday, September 5 with the Green Bay Packers versus the Chicago Bears.
For those who don't feel like watching the games home, here is Eater Austin’s rundown of the best sports bars for everyone’s favorite NFL and college football teams. Hunker down at Longhorn tailgating champs Scholz Garten, or pick any game from the many televisions of the Tavern or Cover 3. Every Austin bar will play Longhorn games (it’s an unofficial requirement), but there are many friendly bar grounds for those inclined to root for other teams in Texas and beyond with like-minded people.
Is a favorite sports bar missing? Let us know on the tipline or in the comments.
