College Football Tailgating

Get Set For College Football Tailgating in a Cruise America RV
College Football Tailgating

College football tailgating can be an awe-inspiring experience. Nowhere else can you find thousands of fans decked out head-to-toe in their school’s colors congregated around a stadium for hours before the big game. Whether grilling up a storm, trading score predictions or tossing footballs, college football tailgating has an uncanny ability to make complete strangers feel like neighbors, united around their alma mater.

And it seems that with each college football season, tailgating parties get bigger and more intricate. So how do you ensure your next college football tailgating party is better than ever? It’s simple when you rent an RV or buy an RV from Cruise America, the nation’s largest RV rental and sales provider. With all the comforts of home, your RV is sure to give you a top-notch college football tailgating experience.

GUIDE TO TAILGATING ESSENTIALS

 

A must for any college football tailgating party is a portable barbecue grill. You’ve got to have burgers, hot dogs and maybe some grilled veggies. Some die-hard tailgaters also bring along deep fryers – versatile tools for frying chicken wings, fish or turkeys.

Comfort is also important for getting the most out of your college football tailgating experience. Dress for changes in weather and take along folding chairs and blankets. Show some school spirit, too! Wear every item of school-related clothing you have.

Another thing to remember: Get there early. Stadium parking lots typically open around 7:00 a.m. and fill up fast. The sooner you arrive, the closer you can park. A view of the stadium can contribute significantly to your tailgating party’s atmosphere. And if you’re heading to a school where RV camping is permitted, you’ll want first dibs on the best spots.

GUIDE TO TAILGATING AT BIG FOOTBALL SCHOOLS

 

As RV tailgating grows more popular, universities are maintaining special rules and restrictions about RV parking. Be sure to check stadium parking rules and current pricing before planning an RV road trip to your school.

Notre Dame Tailgating: RV drive-up parking for Notre Dame tailgating is located in White Field North. Overnight RV parking is prohibited; fans must leave the lot three hours after the game.

Ohio State University Football Tailgating: RV parking for Ohio State University football tailgating is available at the Schottenstein Center in the Buckeye lots and Gray lots 3-7, as well as 650 Ackerman Road.

Penn State Tailgating: RV lots around Beaver Stadium total 750 spaces. Limited overnight parking for RVs is permitted after 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays.
