Five Reasons College Football Season Is My Favorite Time of the Year

It’s no secret—I love sports.  College football is my favorite, and I have been counting down the days till Saturday since January. I can’t wait to spend my Saturdays at the stadium or screaming at the TV with family and friends. Here’s why football season is my favorite time of the year:

Team spirit: 
There’s nothing better than cheering for my team. It is also quality family time—I have taken my dad and brother to games, and Chris and I love going to games together. If I can’t make it to a game, it is also fun to go to alumni watch parties. It’s a great way to make friends because we enjoy cheering for the same team.

The food: 
Whether it’s tailgating barbecue or pizza in front of a TV, food just tastes better when watching college football.

The atmosphere is amazing: 
College football is exciting. I’m a huge fan of explosive offenses and big plays. Though I also watch the NFL, I prefer college football because I feel like the players have something to prove to make it to the NFL. Plus, there’s nothing better than being part of a crowd, screaming and cheering with 60,000 other fans.

    I have an excuse to spend my Saturday in front of the TV: 
    I love going out and spending time with friends, but sometimes I just want to relax and spend my day in front of the TV. College football is the perfect excuse. If we can’t make it to the stadium, I also love to invite friends and family to watch the game with me.

I am not exaggerating when I say that Baylor has built one of the most beautiful stadiums in the country, and it opens on Sunday. I am absolutely giddy just thinking about it. I am still trying to figure out how I can make my way over there, which will be tough with my husband’s schedule. If I make to McLane Stadium this year, it will definitely be one of the best college football seasons ever.
I leave you with one last thing: Sic 'Em Bears!
