FOLLOW LIVE: Texas football hosts Orange-White Spring Game

KBVO will broadcast state quarterfinal triple-header on Saturday


ABOUT THAT STATE QUARTERFINAL TRIPLE-HEADER …

Can’t make it to the Alamodome for the state quarterfinal triple-header involving the football teams at McCallum, Lake Travis and Westlake?

KBVO has you covered.

The KXAN affiliate will air all three games Saturday, said Roger Wallace, KXAN’s sports director. Dubbed “Football Day” in Central Texas by the station, the broadcasts will begin with McCallum vs. Corpus Christi Calallen at noon in a Class 5A, Division II matchup. A Class 6A, Division I game between Lake Travis and San Antonio O’Connor will follow at 4 p.m., and the final game will be a Class 6A, Division II clash between Westlake and Cibolo Steele at 8 p.m.

Wallace will provide play-by-play for the first two games, teaming with Keith Moreland and former Leander coach Steve Gideon. That trio worked KBVO’s Thursday night broadcasts of regular-season games.

Joe Taylor, John Neidel and Abe Garcia will be the crew for the Westlake-Cibolo Steele contest.

If you want to take in the action in person, remember that the Alamodome has a clear-bag policy that limits the size and style of bags brought into the facility.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to, purses, bags or containers larger than a small clutch purse (6 inches x 6 inches x 6 inches), briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, computer bags, camera bags, binocular cases — although binoculars may be worn around the neck — and seat cushions.

To gain approval, bags or purses must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, and they cannot exceed 12-by-6-by-12 inches in size. Small, one-compartment clutch purses that do not exceed 6-by-6-by-6 inches (with or without a handle or strap) also will be permitted. All bags will be subject to inspection.

More information about the policy may be found at the Alamodome website.
