Love college football bowl games? Check out these quick and easy ideas for food, decorations and even games for a bowl game day party!

This post is sponsored by Foster Farms. 


One of my favorite times of the year is almost here (and no, I’m not talking about Christmas!).  As an avid University of Michigan football fan, I’m always excited to watch Michigan and other Big Ten conference teams play during college bowl game season.

A few years ago we actually went to a bowl game to watch our Wolverines. It was so much fun! Unfortunately our team is playing in Florida this year so we will be watching o TV with friends and family.

Starting December 16th through the early part of January there are many great opportunities to Feed Your Fandom with Foster Farms while watching the bowl games including the Foster Farms Bowl. You can watch the exciting match up between the Pac-12 (Arizona) and the Big Ten (Purdue), airing on Fox Sports on December 27th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

But watching the game is just half the fun! Check out our tips for bowl game day food, decorations, games and more!

Quick and Easy College Football Bowl Games Party Ideas



No one wants to spend the entire game in the kitchen cooking the food. Foster Farms has a great line of products that makes keeping everyone fed quick and easy. Whether it’s a platter filled with wings, nuggets and corn dogs, Foster Farms has you covered. Foster Farms chicken breasts and legs marinated in your favorite sauce and grilled to perfection. Or Foster Farms sliced turkey that goes great for those game time hoagies and sandwiches.

At participating Albertsons, Vons and Safeway stores you will find a code to scan on specially-marked Foster Farms packages of fresh chicken and also on signs in the frozen food aisle at your favorite supermarkets that will connect to up to $7.50 in coupon savings when buying participating Foster Farms products.

Also on the packages, and at the Foster Farms Feed Your Fandom website, you will find great game day recipes like Buffalo Blue Cheese Roll-Up Sandwiches, Easy Chicken Party Poppers, Chicken White Bean Chili and other game day recipe ideas as well as savings to Feed Your Fandom during the college football bowl season.


Be creative when serving your food. I used a block M University of Michigan cake pan to serve these Foster Farms treats.

Cut up some veggies and dip to go with hot wings.  Fill a bowl with team colored candy for easy snacking as well.


If you’re a fan of the team you’re watching play, then it’s easy to grab some items from around the house to decorate.  The sign above hangs in our living room year round and it’s great for the food table.  I used a team hat as another easy decoration.  A team cup served as a utensil holder. Get creative with what you already own.

Keep the theme simple and fun by using your favorite team colors for the plates and napkins. Or grab some generic football themed items if you don’t have a favorite team playing.  You could also whip up some burlap football coasters that double as great decorations for the food table.


It may be obvious that the focus of game day is to watch the game, but not everyone in your home make love football as much as you do. Help them learn the game and have fun watching with Football BINGO!


Feed Your Fandom by stocking up on Foster Farms during the college football bowl season and head to Foster Farms for great game day recipe ideas and savings. Don’t forget to watch the exciting year-end action when the Pac-12 battles the Big Ten in the Foster Farms Bowl airing on Fox Sports on December 27th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

    I don’t really watch college football but do watch the Seahawks. I like the wings.

    I like College Football, so I will watch as many as I can squeeze in, but the Birmingham Bowl is the one that my favorite team is playing in.
