There are two Texas Tech grads to thank for the future of tailgating.

The school's athletics department tweeted a photo of the newest thing for football fans -- a party on wheels.

Yahoo Sports reports that "boxGATE" was created by two former Texas Tech students in an effort to up the tailgating experience. Creators Jane't Howey and Sheryl Estes transformed a shipping container into a bar, grill, and living room complete with two TVs and an observation deck.

So how do you get to party in a boxGATE? The company will team up with universities and the school will then lease them to fans and corporations during the season. Texas Tech fans will be able to have the ultimate tailgating experience first.
