As we look ahead to football season, UT has new bragging rights. Southern Living magazine says our tailgating is top notch.
Tennessee's tailgating falls in the top 20 list of "The South's Best Tailgate."
Southern Living looked at things like team spirit, game-day rituals, and game-day style.
The magazine also pointed out the Vol Nashville, saying the houseboats and yachts unite for a massive "sailgate."
A Southern Living editor put it this way: "Tailgating combines two of the South's greatest loves: food and football. No one on Earth celebrates game day like we do: it's a cocktail party, family reunion, and fashion show all in one."
A number of other SEC schools are also on the list, including Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.
