[image-1]It’s officially college football season, y’all. Start cheesin’ up those nachos and dunkin’ those wings. Or skip that mess and head to the nearest local bar or restaurant playing your favorite teams. The USC Gamecocks kick off the season tonight at Vanderbilt at 8 p.m. Catch it on ESPN.

*If we left out your team and associated bar, please email us at connelly@charlestoncitypaper.com.

Watch the aforementioned Gamecocks at King Street Grille in Mount Pleasant, Momma Goldberg’s, The Sparrow, The Recovery Room, Bay Street Biergarten (be wary of Clemson fans, they’ll be there, too), The Alley, and Big Game Bar and Grille.

The Alley, Midtown, Kickin’ Chicken in West Ashley, Juanita Greenberg’s, Momma Goldberg’s, Rec Room, and O’Brion’s on Folly Road can all be found waving the famous Tiger paw on days when Clemson is playing. Oh, and two of the owners of Bay Street Biergarten graduated from Clemson and are sure to be watching along with their patrons.

West Ashley’s Kickin’ Chicken welcomes Clemson and UK Wildcat fans.

Momma Goldberg’s will also be playing Auburn games this season in addition to the Carolina favorites.

Alabama games will be played on the multiple TV’s over at Juanita Greenberg’s.

The three Home Team Barbecue locations will be kicking off this season all-in for the Georgia Bulldogs.

Burn’s Alley, tucked away on King Street, welcomes all North Carolina Tar Heel fans.

The Mellow Mushroom downtown is a great place to enjoy a pizza while watching the Virginia Tech Hokies.

We have gators here for sure, but none of them can play football like the Florida Gators. Parson Jack’s is the best place to watch the Sunshine State’s sports.

Last but not least, Moe’s Crosstown Tavern is the place to go for NC State fans. Assemble your Wolfpack to relish in some killer pub food.

Watch the LSU Tigers at Local’s in Mt. P.
