You may have noticed what appeared to be white chunks of ice floating in the Brazos river this week. While winter is coming, it isn't that cold in the Heart of Texas for that to actually happen. So what's the deal?

In early 2014, when the $266-million McLane Stadium was still under construction, Baylor Athletic Director Ian McCaw had one particular vision in mind for the new stadium’s river-front setting: sailgating. That’s tailgating on a boat. KWBU’s Carlos Morales has more on the growing tradition and how its morphed into a business and recruiting tool.
