“The schedule goes back and forth depending but yeah, we’ve had plenty of time to get out and see different games,” said Chandler. “We got a pretty good schedule down here the way it’s working. There’s Del Valle that’s playing out there and there’s the Pflugerville games. There’s games out by Round Rock. That’s it so far. Tonight I’m going out to catch a Pflugerville [game].”

Executive producer Peter Berg, who directed the movie Friday Night Lights, is well versed in the atmosphere of Texas football. “I’ve been to UT football games several times and I’ve been to tons of high school games and I’ve always thought I had a pretty good understanding of Texas football,” said Berg. “But it wasn’t until I went to Rose Bowl last year, and I’ve been to a lot of USC games, USC fans pride themselves on really being sort of the mecca of college football fans. And when I walked into that Rose Bowl and it was 50% brown and 50% crimson red, and I realized that Texas fans were louder, their cheerleaders were cheering harder, their band was better. Literally, the Texas fans overpowered the SC fans in that stadium and it was a very intense experience to witness that and I’ll never forget it. Oh man, they don’t mess around.”

Friday Night Lights airs Tuesdays at 8PM on NBC.

Stay tuned for updates.
