LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – No one wants to miss the action this Saturday when Texas Tech plays the University of New Mexico. But if you don't have the right connection you could watch the game at many places that will.
The 7 p.m. game will air on Direct TV channel 616, the Mountain West Sports Network. Many households, restaurants and bars will air the game, but with only one choice for TV you may want to tune into this list.
At Nick's Sports Bar on 98th and Quaker you can get a front row ticket to watch the red raiders game. It's just one of the many places you won't miss a beat.
"We have 24 high definitions TVs, non smoking. Should be the spot to watch the game, there's not a bad seat in the house," says Nick's Sports Bar owner, Nick Muscari.
And if that's not enough televisions, you can get a private booth with two TV's at Nicks, the newly opened hot spot. "We seat 277, it's non smoking so it will be a little different than most sports bars around," says Muscari.
Down the street Buffalo Wild Wings says coming here on game day is like being on the field." We try and pull that atmosphere, game day experience in these four walls," says Buffalo Wild Wings manager, Zac Moore.
With red and black everywhere you turn, you can expect to have a great time and eat lots of great food. "We go through a lot of wings, a lot of boneless wings, a lot of traditional wings," says Moore.
But one deal you can't resist is at Beef O'bradys on fourth street. "For the first time ever we are going to do a pour till you score special, which basically you can have a free domestic beer until tech scores," says Beef O'brady's owner Micah Sparks.
You can enjoy every play on their 27 televisions including two located in the bathroom. "Generally in a game like this it will be standing room only. People go pretty bazurch when tech scores," says Sparks.
Nick's along with all the locations airing the game Saturday say early is key. With the game starting at 7 p.m. everywhere suggest getting there an hour or two before kick off.
Here are all the locations airing the game:
