About: The official kick-off weekend of college football has arrived and we’re so excited about it that we’re recommending going to this for the atmosphere alone. Also, think about this: there will be a clash of DragonCon and football fans downtown and it’s going to be hilariously interesting. On a side note: Go Dawgs! Ticket prices vary by what you want to do. The atmosphere/tailgate area/etc are free, but fan zone costs $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets for the games vary.
