College Football Party Ideas

Hey party people!

College football is in full swing. We ended up going to a local game last weekend – Georgia State v. Texas St. This wasn’t plan A, though. We had tickets to the Florida LSU game in Gainesville, but that got cancelled because of Hurricane Matthew. My heart goes out to everyone that lost homes and had to evacuate. I know there is lot of damage and lives lost (especially in Haiti). I was pretty disappointed that the game was cancelled, though. It would’ve been my first SEC football game. I know! Crazy, huh?! 


If you’ve got some College Football viewing parties coming up, here are some easy and budget-friendly College Football Party Ideas!

First things first – Food! Gotta have some good food! 


|1| Mexican Sweet Potato Skins – These can really be appetizers OR main entrees. They’re so delicious and much healthier!
