Ranking the top 3 most unique tailgates in college football
From grilling, to trains, to boats… college football fans love to get creative with their tailgate plans. Mackenzie Salmon highlights the three most unique experiences from across the country.
Week 11 in college football was relatively drama-free, with little chaos to disrupt the US LBM Coaches Poll. The top eight teams maintain their positions, with some positions seeing small differences in the rankings.
Georgia remains at No. 1 after a conclusive victory over then-No. 10 Mississippi, earning 58 of 64 first-place votes. No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 Ohio State, both impressively victorious on Saturday, are only 12 poll points apart as they head towards their anticipated head-to-head matchup in less than two weeks. No. 4 Florida State and No. 5 Washington also hold steady after surviving closely contested games to maintain their unblemished records. However, there have been some changes further down the rankings.
