updated August 2019

It’s that time again - time to pull out your college t-shirts, gather your friends and head to your local alumni watch party bar to cheer on your football team! Football in the south is the real deal, and if you’re looking to relive your glory days, here are some of the biggest watch party locations, as well as a full list of all the alumni watch party locations around DFW where you can root your beloved college teams to victory!

P.S. If there are any recent changes we might not be aware of, or watch party locations not included, please comment and we will update!

Louisiana State University


LOUISIANA State University

LSU tiger fans can head to a true Louisiana spot for both football and crawfish, at Dodie’s on Greenville Ave. You’ll feel right at home! Or you can head to a new watch party spot this year in Victory Park - Dibs on Victory! Both of these bars offer rooftop views too so you can’t go wrong at either location!

Aggies like to watch games at Clutch Bar in Uptown. Alums say they enjoy going there because the bar offers plenty of TVs to choose from. Even more exciting are the food and drink specials that may just pop up during game watches! There’s also a good chance that you’re giving back. Our A&M insider tells us that Clutch gives a portion of game watch proceeds back to the alumni organization to support things like the school’s scholarship program.

There are plenty of bars around Fort Worth where you can find TCU fans, but if you’re looking for a spot in Dallas, horned frogs can head over to the British Beverage Company to watch games. And this year, Taco Heads on Henderson Ave (which is originally from Fort Worth) is the unofficial official watch party location this year!

Texas Tech

Head to Henderson’s High Fives bar if you’re a Texas Tech fan where you’ll find a swarm of other alumni watching the football games! And they even have Red Raiders fans covered with deals on Chilton drinks! Or you can also head over the Stan’s Blue Note just down the road. Other watch party locations include Concrete Cowboy in Frisco, The Hub in Addison, and The Londoner in Colleyville.

University of Oklahoma

The Red River rivalry is no joke! We may be in Texas, but there are plenty of Sooners here in DFW. There are three bars you can check out to watch the game with alums. In Dallas, head over to Henderson Tap House, a staple in the Knox/Henderson neighborhood that becomes a sea of red on Saturday’s. If you’re closer to Collin County, you can visit Henderson Kitchen and Tap in McKinney. And for our friends in Fort Worth, the OU Club of Dallas says head over to Sundance Square and hang out at 3rd Street Bar & Grill.

University of Texas

We’re sure many UT alums make the trip back to Austin every now and then to support their beloved Longhorns! If you are here for a big game, no worries! Tacos and Tequila hosts the official watch party spot for Texas fans, and if that confuses you a bit like it does for us, it’s because TNT is from Austin. However, we would’ve guessed a Texas patio bar like Icehouse would be the more fitting choice.
