ARLINGTON, TEXAS -- The Sun Belt Conference is bringing a taste of New Orleans to College Park Center on Thursday, January 23rd as the men's basketball team faces off against Troy at 8:00 P.M. The Conference is kicking off their #NOLABound Tailgate Tour at UT Arlington before traveling to each Sun Belt school in anticipation of the Conference Championships beginning Wednesday, March 12th in New Orleans.

The tailgate will take place inside College Park Center on the concourse overlooking the arena.  It will start at 7 pm right after the doors open that evening to the game.

The tailgate's main attraction will be the traditional New Orleans cuisine prepared by Cook Me Somethin' Mister!, featured on Food Network's "Tailgate Warriors with Guy Fieri".
