USC Trojans v. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Two of college football’s most trophied teams, this rivalry has an elite status (and not just because USC was once nicknamed the University of Spoiled Children). In keeping with the theme, some USC tailgaters start off with a cigar before doling out shots of Patron. They make a diverse spread of food with carne asada tacos, homemade sausages, ribs, chips and salsa, and a spit-roasted lamb among tailgaters’ favorites. Notre Dame equips themselves with “Chill’N Grills” (coolers with a stereo and gas grill built in) to make breakfast burritos, sausages, burgers, barbecued chicken, and some classic picnic dishes like potato salad. Beers and margaritas help to wash it down.

Winner: USC Trojans. (Cigars’N Patron are more elite than Chill’NGrills.)
