My husband is beside himself. This week for him is like the week leading up to Christmas day for kids. Saturday is his Christmas Day because it means the start of College Football. Lucky for him I love college football season as well! The Triangle is a great place to spend Falls because of the great weather and three ACC College Football teams competing right here in our backyards – well not literally in your backyard but if that does happen for any reason let me know and I can recommend a good landscaper to re sod your back yard :)!
There is nothing like going out to a football game on a clear, clean, crisp Fall Saturday to join family and friends tailgating before the game. The smell of grills cooking yummy foods, football’s sailing through the air, flags flying high and your favorite drinks flowing make College Football tailgates the place to be on any Saturday in the Triangle.
We are very lucky in the Triangle to have 3 Division 1 teams playing some great football in the ACC. Regardless of who you root for there is bound to be some great college football action in the Triangle this Fall!
The Tarheels are on the rise and projected to be in the hunt for the ACC crown this year. If you have not been to Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill then plan a Saturday to go because it is one of the most beautiful stadiums in all of college football.
The Wolfpack are also a top contender this year with their quarterback Russell Wilson one of the top QB’s in all of the ACC. NC State fans can tailgate with the best of them in college football. They open this Thursday night against South Carolina on national TV so safe to say it will be a wild Thursday evening out at Carter Finley Stadium.
Last but not least here in the Triangle are the Duke Blue Devils. It is a fact that Duke football has struggled for attention but head coach David Cutcliffe has definitely fired up the team and the fan base out in Durham.
Now I can’t leave out my alma mata Elon University, even though they are technically not in the Triangle, they are still only about 1 hour away and they will be one of the best teams in the tough Southern Conference this year. Hopefully this will be the year they beat Southern Conference power and rival Appalachian State. If you want to see a great high powered offense then be sure to watch an Elon game this fall!
Finally I have to mention my husband’s (he did help me write a lot of this blog!) favorite team the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Notre Dame fight song usually starts playing about 8:00am in our house and does not stop until well after the game is over! He is confident that this will be a great year for the Irish and trust me we will be watching every play. Regardless of what you think of Notre Dame I can say first hand after going to a game in South Bend that if you like tradition then you will love Notre Dame football!
I have said it over and over again but the TRIANGLE is a great place to live. The list why continues to grow and College Football in the Triangle is another great item to put at the top of the list. When I am not showing houses on Saturday then I know I will be watching college football live or on TV. And if we need to work your home search around your favorite teams schedule on a Saturday then no problem because I know how it is!
I am here to help your home buying or selling process now or in the future so please let me know how I can help. Good luck to all of the Triangle’s College
Football teams this Fall!
