One of the biggest college football games is happening in the new year, and our very own University of Texas at Austin’s Longhorns are playing. The Sugar Bowl pits UT against the University of Washington’s Huskies , in New Orleans on Monday, January 1, 2024 at 7:45 p.m.

Most likely, every single Austin sports-leaning bar (and probably a bunch of restaurants) will be airing the game, but Eater put together this handy map to places that will definitely be showing the game, with some extra activities planned.

The game takes place on New Year’s Day, so Eater also has a separate map of brunch-ish specials and the such for the first day of the year.
