Fans and businesses prepare for Alamo Bowl

Posted by Ben Lawson - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Somewhat overshadowed by the controversy between former Texas Tech Head Football Coach Mike Leach and Texas Tech University is Alamo Bowl.  The Red Raiders take on the Michigan State Spartans Saturday night in San Antonio.

Lubbock businesses prepared for big crowds for the game Saturday afternoon. General Manager at McGillicutty's Irish Pub Mike Stelzer says they expect to reach full capacity. That's 300 people inside.

McGillicutty's will be showing the game on all televisions, but Stelzer says folks may want to head out early.

"Normally 5:30, 6:00 p.m., people start filing in. Normally, by about an hour before the game starts we'll be full. So, everybody better come out early," Stelzer said. 

Meanwhile, fans predict a win, but they say the game won't be the most interesting thing to watch.

"I think Tech's going to win for sure, but I think it's going to be interesting to see who's all going to be there after all the things that have happened recently," Lindsay Lee said. 

"Tech's going to win for coach Leach," Tom Gallagher said.  "We may not agree with what's happened, but we'll always be Tech fans," B.K. Ivey said. 

"It's going to be exciting. It's going to be fun to watch," Jacob Hensley said.
