In search of tailgating supremacy

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to get our grub on, we listen up.

Now that the game of the century is over (in case you turned it off during one of those missed field goal attempts, LSU beat Alabama 9-6) we can turn our attention to the matter of tailgating. I wish there was space to name 10 notable tailgating schools. Unfortunately, I can only say honorable mention to Tennessee, Colorado, Texas, Ohio State and, of course, Ole Miss. Note to anyone who’s about to get mad: I didn’t say ‘top’. I said ‘notable’ tailgating schools.

Louisiana State University
A few weeks ago, I got into trouble for not including LSU in my best food universities round-up. Whoops. After all, this is Louisiana, where everyone takes their food seriously and that includes Tiger fans. Pre-game spreads range from staples like jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish etoufée to whole roasted pig. There’s even an MVT (or more specifically, tailgater of the game).
