The History channel rolls through Austin Saturday for the UT-Iowa Stae game as part of a nationwide tailgating road trip series. The main attraction of the tailgate is the Ultimate Smoker and Grill, an 80-foot long grill that can simultaneously smoke more than 2,000 pounds of meat and cook 1,000 hotdogs, 500 hamburgers or 200 16-ounce steaks. The party, which will include plenty of branded swag, kicks off at 4 p.m. at the LBJ Fountain near the School of Public Affairs (2300 Red River St.). Visit history.com/tailgate for more information.
