Taco Shack Bowl kicks off on KXAN News Today!
AUSTIN (KXAN) — KXAN is kicking off high school football season with the 15th Annual Tack Shack Bowl between high school rivals Anderson Trojans and McCallum Knights Thursday night!
But before the two teams even hit the field, they will duke it out with the spirit decorating contest at two separate Taco Shacks Thursday morning. Students, parents and teachers from both schools will decorate their Taco Shack with their school colors. McCallum High is decorating the restaurant located at 4002 N. Lamar Blvd. and Anderson High is taking over the one at 3901 Spicewood Springs Rd.
A winner will be crowned during KXAN News Today during the 6 a.m. hour Thursday.
KXAN’s Chris Tavarez and Andrew Schnitker will be LIVE on KXAN News Today Thursday starting at 6 a.m. showcasing both teams’ decorations!
Will the winner of the decoration competition be an indicator of who will win the game later that night? You’ll have to go to the game at House Park Stadium at 7:30 p.m. to find out! If you can’t make it to the game, the game will be aired LIVE on KBVO at the same time.
Last year McCallum won the spirit competition but for the past two years, Anderson has won the actual football game.
