Heroic drinking games
Beer pong, flip cup, cornhole, washers, lawn golf -- UT fans take these to the next level. The competition may soon be on the field, but in the interim, fans are talking an equal amount of smack on the tailgating fields. It’s not uncommon to see a table 20-deep with flip-cup players yelling, chugging, flipping, and doing it all over again. The game before the game is equally sacred and just as rowdy.
The rumble of generators
There are a ton of folks for whom tailgating IS the sport. UT does a particularly good job of making sure there’s an on-pavement option that’s living room-esque in its intensity. Among the cheers and jeers, there’s an undercurrent of enough generators to weather a hurricane. Smart fans skip the $65 ticket in favor of a breezy non-stadium butt experience.
