College Football starts up this week and we could not be happier! The big kickoff starts next weekend with several major matchups you can’t miss. College Football on Saturdays is a time-honored tradition here in the South. The experience is unlike any other. Campus Greek Life kicks the party off early with country music, cute outfits, and the best tailgates. Families trickle in and spend the day in the parking lot grilling, drinking, and reminiscing. Strangers bond and enemies are booed. When game-time finally arrives, the masses trek to the stadium to the sounds of chanting and excitement echoing throughout. Everyone is in full school spirit and ready to celebrate a victory.

We’re ready for some victories of our own here at QuintEvents! We’re kicking off football season by sharing our favorite teams, mascots, and tailgating foods with you. Here’s what some of our staff members said when asked to answer the following:

No matter who your favorite team is, we can all agree spending the day hanging out with your friends and family in the name of football is a great day. You can catch us every Saturday, rain or shine, enjoying the best games with the best tailgates. We love burgers, hot dogs, and chicken tenders because they’re easy and delicious. Don’t forget tailgate classics, though! Nachos, pulled-pork, and chili are great for cold fall days. Here are two of my favorite game day recipes:
