America's Best Tailgating Cities

Slide 20 of 32

South Bend, IN

College: Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Notre Dame Stadium

Notre Dame's tailgaters cheer as they ride through the lots in buses after Sunday morning mass. Before the game begins, the team makes its way to the appropriately nicknamed "Touchdown Jesus"—a mural overlooking the stadium that depicts Jesus with his arms raised like a referee declaring a touchdown.
