Tulsa Tailgate - Final Home Game of 2015

Hi Everyone,

Our plan is to be setup around 3-3:30pm tomorrow on the Grid.

Hope to see everyone come out strong for the last home tailgate and game of the year. Let's send our seniors off for all their hard effort. While the season hasn't gone how we expected, the reality is that is life.

Miami FL v UC Tailgate - Thursday

Obviously our boys have had some heart-breaking moments this season and last week was filled with injuries and some adversity that was outside of our control (looking at you replay official). However, UC brings an offense that is #2 in the country in total offensive production and we learned that is Hayden Moore is going to be fun to watch

Miami (FL) brings in a team that is 3-0 but hasn't been really challenged except for a close win against Nebraska.

It would seem we have a perfect prime time match on ESPN with a kick-off at 7:30pm. Let's think positive and recall this instant classic against Rutgers in 2006? 

Our crew will be setup around 3:30pm, we are also going to shake it up this week on the beer selection this week. Look for Braxton Brewing's Storm Golden Cream Ale on tap this week.

Feel free to bring a side, dish or snacks to share with others.

Temple Tailgate at The Grid

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the late post - was traveling most of the week.

Our crew will be setup no later than 5pm today on The Grid.

Looking forward to another great showing as this will be one of the best games of the season and set the stage for a potential AAC championship.

2016 Bearcat Tailgater Upgrades

If you have been to campus in the last few weeks it is clear that the new and improved Nippert Stadium is going to take our home field advantage to the next level.

Our crew didn't have $86M to spend but we did tackle a few upgrades of our own this off-season. It is hard to believe that this will be our eighth season with the Tailgater! What's even more impressive is how the tailgating scene at UC has grown since we decided to up our game and invited Bearcat Nation to join us in creating a tailgating environment that we had witnessed at other schools.

A few highlights for this year:

1. 32" TV and Microwave removed to make space for a new 60" TV
2. New speakers to replace the originals (hard to believe they lasted this long)
3. Draft beer system upgraded with new for the perfect tap and pour

Miller Lite will continue to be our go-to beer of choice for game days. As always - all we ask is that you drop a few bucks in the donation box (near the beer tap) to help us cover our costs.

Now that we are all back at The Grid - it is only fitting that our neighbors are Republic of Cincinnati and Lucy Gate. With all three of us together - you can't go wrong!

PS: Check out Republic of Cincinnati's trailer build - excited to see the final result next Saturday!

See you all next Saturday starting around 4pm.

Bearcat Tailgater Returns to The Grid

While we await for the first kick under the brighter lights of the new Nippert Stadium. Our crew is excited to return to The Grid as our home tailgating location. We are back in spot #2 in the map above. Joining us in the Alley is our good friends Republic of Cincinnati. Between their crew and Lucy Gate - it going to be a lot of fun!

This year we have focused on a few upgrades to the Tailgater. A new 60" TV, speakers and new draft system for the perfect pour of Miller Lite.

See you all in a few short weeks to celebrate a Bearcat Victory!
