Where to watch the Big 12 Championship in Dallas-Fort Worth

This weekend, the TCU Horned Frogs (10-2) face off against the Oklahoma Sooners (11-1) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington for supremacy over the Big 12 conference.

If you’re looking to snag a ticket to this year’s game, there are still plenty floating around (tickets start at $90 on Ticketmaster and at $120 on StubHub). For those who spent all their cash on Cyber Monday shopping, we found a few low cost viewing options to choose from.

Unlike other high-profile sporting events, the game can be watched for free from the comfort of your home if you have basic cable (kickoff is set for 11:30 p.m. Central on FOX/KDFW/Ch. 4). If you prefer a more lively setting, you can take in the game with other Horned Frog and Sooner fans at one of the many watch parties happening around Dallas-Fort Worth.
