Tailgating Recipes for the Weekend

We at the Valero Alamo Bowl are huge fans of tailgating, as you can probably tell from our Tailgate Town area, where we have set aside extra-large, reserved parking spaces, Kiolbassa sausage and a Shiner grill for groups buying 25 tickets or more.

Our love of food and a festive atmosphere has inspired us to find three opponent-themed recipes to share for this weekend’s games. After all, why not grill your opponent in the parking lot before heading into the stadium to cheer on your favorite team? This week’s three recipes feature the well-established flavors of San Antonio, Buffalo, and Hawaii.

Oklahoma State at UTSA, 11 a.m. CST

The Oklahoma State Cowboys will become the first Big 12 opponent to play Larry Coker’s UTSA Roadrunners when they come to the Alamodome on Saturday for an 11 a.m. kickoff. Whether you will be making it out to the White Out & Alamodome 20th Anniversary Appreciation Day game or watching from home in Stillwater, you will want to try the Bocadillos de Chorizo and Mike’s Sausage con Queso for a spicy San Antonio-flair.

Buffalo at Baylor, 2:30 p.m. CST

The Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, is credited with the creation of Buffalo Wings after a mom used some chili sauce and leftover chicken wings to feed her son and his friends. Today the bar serves more than 70,000 pounds of them each month as fans flock to try the original. If you ever make the trip to sample them yourself, don’t try to order “Buffalo Wings” as there they simply call them chicken wings or wings.

In honor of the Baylor Bears hosting the Buffalo Bulls on Saturday why not try Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Dip and Spicy Crockpot Chicken Drumsticks for your tailgating party.

Hawaii at Oregon State, 7 p.m. CST

Our final recipes of the week will help you create your own Hawaiian-themed Luau as you watch Oregon State host Hawaii. We will stop short of offering you tips on creating your own coconut bra and grass skirt for game attire (although filling Reser Stadium with 45,000 fans dressed for a Luau would be incredible), but here are several recipes to make your watch party the best one in town, including Mai Tais, Pineapple Fried Rice, and Sweet and Sour Meatballs.
