the Kingsford Smoking Arm; which pitted the rival
fans against each other in football-themed
games. The points leaders of these games were
then eligible to compete in one of the tour’s most
exciting events; the EZ Grill Cook-Off Before Kickoff, a head-to-head cooking challenge where fans
from rival schools competed using the tour’s
products to create the best tailgating dish. Winners received special prize packs.
The only tour of its kind, the Gridiron Rivals Tailgate Tour pits fans from both schools against

for their favorite tailgater. The ultimate honor
comes at the end of the season: the Tailgater of
the Year Award. The winner, chosen by fans
