Track ‘Em Tigers Tailgate Challenge: Year Two


The #TETtailgate Challenge is back for Year Two! Let’s build on last year’s success while showing college football fans everywhere that tailgating on the Plains is the best! And, you never know, there might be prizes on the line! 

Do you and your friends take great pride in your tailgate? Do you put more thought into your tailgate than you did to your career choice? Are you more excited about gathering with your friends and family around copious amounts of delicious food than actually going to or watching the game? Well, maybe that’s a stretch….

Track ‘Em Tigers wants to see and hear all about your tailgate. More importantly, we want to acknowledge your hard work and dedication to celebrating the Auburn Tigers every single game. We want to see how all of our readers show their school spirit in their own way.  And, the more unique, the better! It doesn’t have to be tailgating in the shadow of Jordan-Hare. It can be a viewing party where all of your friends grill out and play cornhole. It can simply be your decisions on delectable Saturday dishes for you and your family. 

Using Twitter or Instagram, use the hashtag #TETtailgate and tag @TrackemTigers and@Best5Zach. Make sure to follow us. When it’s time to tailgate, start posting! Give us a brief description of what makes your tailgate tradition special. Make sure to tell us about any special visitors or fans from the other team whom you hosted. Let other fans learn special tips and tricks that you employ. Most importantly, post pictures of and recipes for your best tailgate dishes. We want all the details! 

Additionally, I will be posting how my friends, family, and I spend our game days. Not only will that include some pictures and tailgate ideas but some awesome recipes! 

Each week, I will choose a special tailgate and feature it as a weekly winner of the tailgate challenge. I’ll also show the best crowd selfie, best food, and most team spirit.

Use those hashtags and start posting! I already have!

2016 College Football Week 1 TV Schedule

It's been dubbed the BEST OPENING WEEKEND EVER. Now you have a schedule for how to watch all of the games.

Football is back! We've already had two games last weekend, but now it is truly back as every team is getting into their Week 1 games. Do you like college football? Of course you do, you're here! Well, there are great games on from now until Monday night, so you can definitely get your fix in.

Thursday night, I'd recommend checking out Tennessee vs Appalachian State. App State was sneaky good last season and barely missed out on winning the Sun Belt. They had one of the best defenses in the country. Tennessee may find out why you don't want to schedule the Mountaineers as your Game 1 opponent just like Michigan did back in 2007.

Or, if you're into "historic" things, you can check out the first college football game broadcast solely over Twitter.

There really aren't any great games on Friday night, but should that stop you from watching football? No, it should not. Check out Toledo vs Arkansas State for some scouting of Auburn's Week 2 opponent.

Saturday is when all of the big games occur. It starts early with that Oklahoma vs Houston game at noon and just keeps on rocking from there. LSU vs Wisconsin from the Currently Defrosted Tundra of Lambeau Field is at 3:30 along with UCLA and Texas A&M. Georgia and North Carolina kick off at 5:30pm on ESPN. There's an Alabama game on at 8pm against USC, but let's face it, the game you really want to watch is Clemson at Auburn at 9pm!

Sunday and Monday only have one game per day, but they're good ones! Notre Dame and Texas will face off Sunday night with Ole Miss and Florida State closing out the BEST OPENING WEEKEND EVER Monday evening.
