The college football and tailgate season is coming to an end. But some of the country’s biggest rivalries are just heating up, and so is the food that helps make the game feel that much more complete. Here are 3 of the best tailgating food rivalries from around the country that will make your mouth water and get you ready for the games!

Auburn vs. Alabama

Few football games are played on as big of a stage as the Auburn Tigers vs. the Alabama Crimson Tide. And in the pre-game tailgating outside Bryant-Denny Stadium, you’ll see generous helpings of pulled pork, chili, and southern-style Mac & cheese. What is each team’s signature dish though? Tailgaters for the University of Alabama cook up some mean BBQ, except it’s not BBq like you’d expect.

Alabama fans make Smoke-Roasted Chicken with Alabama white BBQ sauce. This classic Alabama sauce is made with mayo, vinegar and horseradish then spiked with a little hot sauce. Sounds weird, tastes fantastic.

Michigan vs. Ohio State

Moving north to Columbus, OH, is a stadium called “The Horseshoe.”  That’s where the Michigan Wolverines will play the Ohio State Buckeyes.  The Buckeyes have their namesake in a perfect little candy combination you might be used to: Peanut Butter and Chocolate.

Buckeyes candy is a perfect companion the tables in the parking lots outside that will be lined with Italian beef sandwiches, chips and cheeseballs, and something they call pizza burgers.  Yum!

University of Utah vs BYU

1700 miles west is Salt Lake City, where the University of Utah Utes will host the BYU Cougars in their quest to win eight-in-a-row.  What are some of the more popular foods outside of Rice Eccles stadium? You can’t miss the variations of red cream soda and the red and white M&M Rice Eccles crispy treats. Plus, plenty of rib-eye steak, corn on the cob, cheese cake, and lots of chips and salsa. If the food is red it’s a must. Just make sure that if you are eating red beef that your cow isn’s still moo-ing!
