There’s more to Los Angeles than the glitz of Hollywood
. As home to two major American colleges, University of California at L.A. (UCLA) and University of Southern California (USC), there are plenty of opportunities to see the ole pigskin get tossed around. Perhaps the city’s biggest claim to fame is LA’s Tournament of Roses with Pasadena's famous New Year's Day parade and the classic Rose Bowl game - an exciting way to kick off the new year.
As the largest city in Ohio, Columbus is no stranger to the NCAA. Ohio State University is one of the largest public colleges in the nation and joined the Big 12 in1912. OSU attracts thousands of Buckeye fans each football season who come home to cheer on the Buckeyes in Ohio Stadium, known as "The Horseshoe” to locals. These days it's Coach Jim Tressel who leads the Buckeyes to victory during his famous games of “tresselball.” Buck up and book your tickets today.
Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder houses the University of Colorado, the largest university in the state. While Boulder may be known for its outdoor activities, jam band scene and laid-back hippie vibe, the college football culture is nothing to scoff at. Starting in the 2012-13 season the UC Buffaloes became part of the Pac-10 Conference. Catch them in their new division.
Along the Arkansas River and near the Ozark Mountains, Tulsa is one of the most scenic college towns on our list and lies in an area of the state locals call “Green Country.” While the city is home to big league sports teams, the college football spirit is still high. Home to the University of Tulsa, catching a game during the season is easy. The “TU” Golden Hurricanes play their games at Skelly Stadium - now Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
While Eugene’s city motto is “A Great City of the Arts and Outdoors" - someone should add: "and Football During the Fall." The Oregon Ducks are the mascot of University of Oregon and are part of the Pacific 10 conference. Catch a rival game at Autzen Stadium and see the Ducks get their feathers ruffled up against the Oregon State Beavers (aka "The Civil War”) or against the Washington Huskies.
The capital city of the Lone Star State takes its football very seriously. What else would you expect from the home of Friday Night Lights
? Winner of the national championship in 2005-6, the Longhorns play their home games at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, the second-largest stadium in Texas. Be sure to wear your best burnt orange windbreaker and be prepared to “Hook ‘em.”
Besides being known for South Beach
, a spicy Latin vibe and that NFL team that gets so much play, Miami hosts the Hurricanes, the football team of the University of Miami. In fact, the entire state of Florida is pretty dedicated to football, and state rivalries are great games to see. Each year the 'Canes play the University of Florida’s Gators and Florida State’s Seminoles - some of the most exciting show-downs in the Sunshine State.
