Tennessee #1 In Football Tailgating By Bleacher Report

| No TrackBacks
1. Tennessee
Tennessee has been ranked No. 1 by Bleacher Report when it comes to tailgating. Check out the story: Tennessee Top Tailgating List

Here's what they wrote: 

Tennessee shares a common tailgating bond with Washington, as the two schools make the best use of nearby bodies of water to help enhance the experience. But Volunteers fans don't just use the Tennessee River to get to Neyland Stadium; they make it a floating party.

Called either boatgating or sailgating, this tradition involves a group of boat-owning fans who have been dubbed the Vol Navy. They start the party out on the water, come in for the game and then keep things going all night back on the boat--a practice that puts Tennessee above all others.
