There are some beautiful campus’ across the country. From the warm climate schools on the west coast to the east coast schools that have a crisp feel to them in the fall. There are so many great campus’. But to have a great college football atmosphere on Saturday there has to be more than just beautiful scenery. You have to have a special energy around the campus that is contagious. The school has to have a loyal group of fans that are always there and cheer for their team through the good times and the bad. I’m going to go through what I think are the best Universities across the country to enjoy a college football game at.
Ole Miss (Mississippi) Rebels – Ole Miss which is located in Oxford, MS is one of the coolest places in the country to enjoy the college football gameday experience. Ole Miss has a loyal and passionate fan base that is always showing up with energy and making the most of their fall Saturdays. The special thing that they do at Ole Miss is that they have a huge tailgate before every home game at what they call the Grove. The Grove is a huge area on campus where everyone sets up their tailgates and has a big party before the game. I personally have never had the chance to experience it but I have friends who go to Ole Miss and they say that it is unlike anything else. The energy and great atmosphere are unrivaled and everyone always looks to be having a great time. Those Rebel fans sure know how to tailgate the right way.
University of Wisconsin – The University of Wisconsin which is located in Madison, WI and is another school with a great tailgate atmosphere. This is one of those schools that have a loyal fan base down to the core. Those fans will show up in numbers no matter if the team is having a good or bad year, they will be there. They also don’t complain about the weather up there. It gets pretty frigid there in the winter (sub zero temperatures) but the fans always show and make the most of the experience. The tailgating experience in Madison is a little different from some other schools due to the fact that they do tailgate outdoors and grill, but the bar scene is also a big part of the experience.
