5 Tips For Tailgating Before the Idaho Game

Are you tailgating tomorrow? If your answer is 'yes,' this article is for you. Every week before game day, Gator Tailgating will take a look at the opponent, the weather forecast, the other games scheduled, and the food/drink menu to make some suggestions on how to improve your tailgate party. Here are 5 tips for tailgating before/after this weekend's Gator game. 

1. Enjoy the Night Kickoff - The University Atheltic Association and Jeremy Foley finally listened. They've heard the calls for more late games for years, but this year they've actually done something about kickoff times. With Idaho starting at 7pm, Eastern Michigan at 4pm, and Kentucky at 7:30pm, tailgating fans finally have time to enjoy the pre-game without having to rush to a noon kickoff. Whether you use your morning to relax and hit the snooze button or you still plan on getting to campus by the crack of dawn to enjoy that much more of your pre-game tradition, it's a win-win.

8:30am - Penn State vs UCF - ESPN2

Why is this game so early? Because it’s coming all the way from Dublin, Ireland! This will be James Franklin’s (Vandy’s old HC) first game coaching Penn St, against a UCF team that made it to a BCS game last year!

12:00 noon - App St at Michigan - ESPN2

Remember 2007? Appalachian St upset #4 Michigan on the opening game. I doubt that Michigan will let something like this happen again, but let’s hope so!

Gator Tailgating Games - The Slip and Flip

Slip Cup : The New Fad of Tailgating Games

Flip Cup and Slip ‘n Slides are definitely not new, and people have been enjoying them for decades seperately. However, recently a craze has begun and it has taken the tailgating and outdoor party world by storm.

It has been credited with being started by a couple guys fom Portland, Oregon that happened to have both events at a house party. They had a slip and slide set up to cool off in between games of flip cup and beer pong, and from a simple backyard house party, a new drinking game was born.
