Texas Bowl's TexFest Canceled By Rain, Some Events Moved Inside

Everyone bitches about a drought, but then the rain picks the worst time to hit.

The TexFest, the music/food/fun outdoor part of today's Texas Bowl, has been canceled because of the drippy, coldish, gloomy weather.

We're sure Illinois fans are wondering what the hell's up, since this "weather cancellation" doesn't involve two feet of snow.

As many of the planned events as possible are being moved inside Reliant Stadium, on the concourses. (Gee, if only there was a big, empty, Dome-like building available.)

Reliant will open to fans at 3 p.m. for the events:

Roger Creager, who was scheduled to headline the lineup on the Bud Light Stage, will instead perform in the Cuervo Cantina, located in the South Field Level Concourse behind section 138. Cody Johnson will hit the stage at 3:00 p.m. CT, followed by Creager at 4:00 p.m. CT

The roof will be closed, of course, and kickoff will go on as planned around 5 p.m.
