Collegiette’s Guide to The Super Bowl



Alright, Collegiettes, huddle up. It’s game time. The big game.

If you’re anything like me, then: you’re still riding the high from UCF’s historic Fiesta Bowl win, your favorite NFL team blew it this year and somewhere along the way you forgot to kind of care about professional football. Now suddenly Super Bowl Sunday snuck up on you and you feel like a dog walking on its hind legs. That’s okay.

Whether you’re watching it for the football, food, commercials or half-time show: Here’s your basic playbook to this year’s Super Bowl and some tips on how to make your Sunday an optimal Funday.


The Seattle Seahawks are playing the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 48 THIS Sunday at 6:30EST in New Jersey.

Denver has played in six Super Bowls and won twice. While Seattle has lost the only Super Bowl they played in.

With both teams holding a 15-3 record this season and in the number-one seed, there isn’t a clear underdog which should make things interesting.

Quarterback for the Broncos is the notable Peyton Manning and Seahawks’ young quarterback is Russell Wilson. Both studs on and off the field.

Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are performing for the half-time show.



If beer and hot wings aren’t your thing and you’re looking for something a little fancier WHO ARE YOU?! Nah, don’t you worry and don’t waste your time testing out that risky new Pinterest recipe… My pals Harry & David have some divine dips you can bring to the Super Bowl party to dive on into. You can never go wrong with Spinach Artichoke.

Super Bowl Sunday is the 2nd largest day for U.S. food consumption after Thanksgiving Day. So carpe that diem! It’s time to cheat on your New Year’s Resolution diet!

Extra Points:

Just pick a team. Even if you don’t want to, will yourself to for the sake of your own enjoyment.

Enjoy the game but don’t be a poser. There’s nothing wrong with not being a huge football fan, but there is a lot wrong with pretending you are.

Don’t scroll through social media the entire time! Just be present and enjoy yourself!
