The Oregon State Beavers football team travel to six away games this season in six vastly different locations. I know there’s always a segment of our audience who enjoy having that sense of wanderlust and as a football fan, there’s always that extra rush that comes from cheering for your team in enemy territory. That brings us to this week’s Sunday poll...What Away Football Game Would You Most Like To Travel To in 2018?
Let’s go over your choices...
Ohio State - Saturday, Sept. 1
Ohio stadium is one of college football’s greatest cathedrals... Worth doing at least once before you kick the bucket. Plus, Columbus is an underrated town for nightlife and home of Schmidt’s Sausage house: the best German food this side of the atlantic.
Nevada - Saturday, Sept. 15
Reno: the biggest little city in the world. Mackay Stadium is a little bit smaller of a venue, but intimate settings can often make for more fun. Of course, for the gamblers, there’s all the fun of the casinos and such...Plus, maybe you’ll run into Lieutenant Dangle and Deputy Travis Jr.
Arizona State - Saturday, Sep. 29
Within a stone’s throw of Phoenix, Tempe has plenty of great shopping to do in your downtime and wan’t to get out of the heat. There are some cool outdoorsy things to do too if you pack enough sunscreen. All that, and picture this: being close enough to the field to hear whatever craziness is going to come out of Herm Edwards’ mouth.
Colorado - Saturday, Oct. 27
Beautiful Boulder, Colorado...Truly one of the most scenic college towns in the NCAA. Folsom Field itself is also pretty gorgeous and come on: they run a live buffalo across the field pregame. As far as entertainment, there’s always great hikes if you’re outdoorsy and it’s within shouting distance of Denver, if that’s your thing.
Stanford - Saturday, Nov. 10
There’s tons of of college football history within the walls of “The Farm” if you’re a college football nerd. If you’re just a regular nerd, you can pay a visit to the Computer History Museum in Palo Alto. That’s not even mentioning all the other fine dining and recreation that the Bay Area has to offer.
Washington - Saturday, Nov. 17
The closest game geographically to the Corvallis area, so this one would definitely be easier on the wallet. Plus, if you know someone with a boat, the whole “Sailgating” thing that Husky fans have going on is admittedly a lot of fun. I know, it’s natural for the the teams in Oregon and Washington to have this whole rivalry going, but UW does have one of the most gorgeous settings for a college football game in the nation.
Let us know what game you’re most excited for by voting in the poll (if you didn’t come to this link via Twitter on your phone because technology), letting us know in the comments, or tweeting at us. Go Beavs!
