Auburn University’s very own Tigers are back this season to take on their long-term rivals, the Crimson Tide from the University of Alabama. Now is the perfect time to break in your new homes in Opelika, AL and throw a tailgating party for your favorite teams as the seasons change. Having just beaten Mississippi State by a nose, at 41-34, the Tigers are back and fiercer than ever this season.
Although Auburn is currently ranked in 6th place in the SEC this season, they hope to take the Championship and defeat the Crimson Tide, holding 5th place. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban has been keeping which starter quarterback he will use for each game this season a secret. Their defense has been on point, but the Auburn Tigers are ranked in the top 25 ranked college football teams and they’re ready to prove why.
Tailgating is a great way to prep for a game and show your support as a fan. While some people bring portable barbeques and paint their entire bodies with their team’s colors, here are some great ways to optimize your enjoyment this football season:
Pick out some flags to put outside your new homes in Opelika, AL or your car. Pack a cooler with some of your favorite munchies, burger fixings, bean dips, and beverages. Bring a few of your favorite beers and some other drinks to quench your thirst. Nothing helps you enjoy a game more than a little R+R.
Tailgating etiquette is an important part of enjoying the game. Make sure your loyalty to your team doesn’t dampen the enjoyment or safety of opposing fans or players. They’re people too- even if they’re not the ones you’re rooting for. Football games are heavily attended by families and children, so make sure you act the part.
If you can’t make it out to the games, throwing a party at your new homes in Opelika, AL can help you and your friends enjoy the game, regardless of what team you’re rooting for. Pick out your favorite recipes for bean dip, queso, or wings and kick it.
