This was my third ever college football game, having seen California play Air Force in 2002 and the University of Central Florida v University of Texas El Paso.
This was however by a country mile the biggest, most historic and most important game my wife and I have ever attended.
Having moved the kickoff from 1pm to 8pm to reach a national television audience, seeing Miami v Oklahoma was going to be a classic.
Above all taligating is about eating , drinking and having fun.
Whilst we did not perform a traditional tailgate bar-b-q as we had a hire car and no propane (Hank Hill would have been most upset with me) we did have some beers and some giant pulled pork rolls.
