Every College Football Watch Party in NYC

The Big Apple doesn’t disappoint when it comes to gameday watch parties. Saturdays in the fall mean fried wings, cheap beer, and dusting off that old jersey you’ve stuffed under the bed (because who has a closet in New York City?). But before you can relive your epic college debauchery and exercise foolhardy passion, you have to know where to find your people. Let this comprehensive list guide you (ideally to dorm-style beer pong, two-story beer bongs, and late-night stumbles home).


We get it Duke, you’re a basketball campus and you’re busy making money (or studying). But failing to put together a Saturday watch party just shows laziness and lack of dedication. Wall Street is watching, and it doesn’t look good. On the other hand, your snobby friends from UVA decided not sign a formal contract with one bar, and instead plan on rotating on a weekly basis. Because every bar in the city wants that huge crowd they bring for gameday Saturday, ya know?

Big Ten

With the exception of Minnesota holding back the group, the conference returning the best bowl record from a year ago looks to be well positioned for the upcoming season. Ohio State and Wisconsin carry multiple party locations, and most of the teams have secured exclusive contracts with their partner bar (meaning you won’t find a non-power conference fan base trying to steal seats at your place).

Big 12

Yep, we’re going to keep berating teams who can’t put together a watch party. In this case, we know it’s not the money deterring Baylor from locking down a contract. This past winter the IRS revealed tax filings paid out to two former Baylor employees, Art Briles and Kenneth Starr. The duo was paid roughly $20 million combined after both were fired in 2016 amid a sexual assault scandal involving the football team. Coach, send some of that paper over our way and we’ll get Baylor rolling with a watch party.

There’s always one. However, this one doesn’t surprise us much. Stanford proclaims to be the Ivy League of the West, and honestly good for them. No one really cares, because it doesn’t exist. We are glass-half-full-type of people though, so let’s look at the bright side: Their Facebook page is offering free shakes for any Stanford alum who takes a Barry’s Bootcamp fitness class. See you there!

FINALLY. A real conference. We don’t even care now how much the SEC brags about being the best football conference in America. They like to drink beer, eat heart-attack-inducing fried foods, and cheer on their favorite teams with their college friends. Let’s all raise our glasses in celebration of a group we all aspire to be to.

A League of Their Own

Putting together a watch party in the Big Apple is no small feat. Contracts with bars are competitive, and Manhattan is smaller than it’s made out to be. So, securing watch party real estate below 59th Street can be quite an adventure. On top of it all, you have to have gritty fans willing to relive their degenerate college Saturday’s each week. The following have battled through two-a-days, persevered through offseason conditioning, and have risen to the top of their respective conference fields to give you, the fans, a gameday watch party in NYC.
