09/13/2013 11:59 AM

Churchill Downs announced that it will host a “Big Game Watch Party” on Saturday so horseracing fans can also enjoy the annual match-up.

The first of 10 races will begin at 12:45 p.m. — 45 minutes after scheduled kick-off. ESPN’s coverage will be broadcast on Churchill’s 16’x20’ plaza video screen. At the conclusion of the Governor’s Cup game, the Alabama/Texas A&M game will be shown.

The track’s plaza will feature a tailgate party atmosphere, complete with bleacher seating, football toss inflatables and drink specials.

General admission is $3 and all college students who show a current student ID will be admitted free of charge.

Churchill Downs kicked off its first-ever September meet last Friday. Races continue every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through September 29.
