AUSTIN (KXAN) — This one is for all the tacos.
The 20th installment of the “Taco Shack Bowl” hits House Park at 7:30 p.m. Thursday featuring the Anderson Trojans and McCallum Knights, but before the game on the gridiron, fans showed school spirit and pride.
McCallum claimed its third consecutive spirit competition win after a fierce competition with Anderson. KXAN’s Kristen Currie announced the winner on KXAN News Today.
McCallum emblazoned the Taco Shack at 4002 N. Lamar Blvd. and Anderson tackled the restaurant at 3901-C Spicewood Springs Rd.
Pep rallies at each school are scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at McCallum, along with two at Anderson at 9 and 10 a.m.
Anderson won the game last year 14-7.
At first, it looked like it would be another reduced capacity crowd for the rivalry game, but Austin Independent School District athletics officials changed their minds and will allow full capacity crowds at athletic events. They announced early last week stadiums would hold just 25% capacity due to COVID-19.
