Tailgate like a Buff! – or like a buff should, that is. I’ve always wished that CU had more of a tailgating culture, but as time goes on, I’ve realized that tailgating is what we make it. CU alumni seem to be the tailgating pros, other than the fact that they usually don’t get as rowdy as I would like to see CU students get. Tailgating means school pride, and although our football team isn’t #1, whatever. Football is a great excuse to wear black&gold, listen to good music, drink Bloody Mary’s and play beer pong in the parking lot.


  • Games – Beer pong or corn hole are great for tailgating in the parking lot.
  • Drink – Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and Buffalo Gold by Boulder Beer
  • Popcorn – Individual baggies are fun
  • Game – Day Food – Pinterest has great recipes for cheese dips, guacamole and pigs-n-a-blanket
  • Buffalo Spirit!
