Who has the best tailgate: Georgia or Alabama?

College football might be one of the most exciting sports in the country, but it's the tailgate that really separates the experience from others. Tailgates bring fans together and we want to know which college team has the best one. In this matchup, we have Georgia against Penn State. Georgia's historic North Campus and Dawg Walk are just some of the activities to check out in Athens. Alabama has the Quad and the Walk of Champions. Which one is better? 🏈🍖

Whether it's the food or the camaraderie, tailgates are a place that has a euphoric charm about them, taking people back to their college experiences or students making their own memories to reminisce about in the future. There is no shortage of great tailgates in the country, but eight schools have really separated themselves from the pack. Which school will prevail?

From the Georgia Arch to the Dawg Walk, Georgia has plenty to offer in terms of activities for tailgaters. And when you're not exploring the sights, you can go up to any smoker to grab some of the tastiest barbecue you can find in the south. 

Here is what Rebecca Burns, publisher of the independent student paper Red and Black, told Sports Illustrated:

[We have] an amazing spirit and attitude. Everybody says that, but it’s very friendly and warm. That hospitality sets us apart. And you can meet the most adorable mascot in all of college football. At Georgia, the tailgating is taken very seriously, it’s “a lot classier” than other parts of the country. History is very important as well.

Hours before any Penn State game, you'll see a blue and white ocean of RVs and tents just outside Beaver Stadium. Welcome to the home of the Nittany Lions. People marvel at the sight of a Penn State tailgate for the sheer size of it. It doesn't hurt that most tailgate locations are a short walk from the stadium, making the transition from party time to game time even easier.

Here is what Joe Gordon, President of the State College Quarterback Club, told Sports Illustrated:

You must see the players arrive on the traditional "blue buses" to the stadium. Everyone honks their horn as they drive up to the stadium. They walk a short distance to enter the stadium to crowds of adoring fans. Another must-do is having Creamery ice cream. One of the best ice creams in the country; and if you love it, ship some home on dry ice.
