I went to a college football game about a week ago. I haven't been to one in a while. I also went, for the first time in my life, to a "tailgate." I live in a big town. I realized that one interesting advantage of a college town is that there's an activity that everyone in town participates in other week for 3-4 months out of the year. It also helps when your team always wins!
I personally found it a bit nerve-racking and disappointing though. My team was only ahead by 10 or 20 points and only ended up winning by around 24 points.
