The 2019 college football season is almost here. Many fans are excited for their favorite teams to get a fresh start, but they are also happy for another reason — tailgates are back.
One of the things that makes college football special is that it’s not just about what happens during the 60 minutes on the gridiron. Various game day traditions can be found at schools across the country, and that extends to tailgates.
