Atmosphere

The tailgating scene at Temple has seen a major uptick in recent years as the Owls have become much more competitive recently. What once was a few Owls fans in barren parking lots surrounding the Vet has now been transformed into a thriving tailgate atmosphere that is one of the best in all of college football in the North East.

On game days you’ll find Temple fans all throughout the parking lots surrounding The Linc. You’ll see tons of people sporting the cherry and white of Temple as they prepare to enter The Linc and cheer on the Owls to victory. The sea of tents and grills will make you feel like you’re tailgating at an Eagles game only on a slightly smaller scale.

The student tailgates at Temple are also thriving. You’ll see tons of students  partying hard before they enter the stadium to cheer on the Owls as they look to rack up another victory in their quest to win The American. There is plenty of beer pong to be played, keg stands to take part in, and beers to shotgun so don’t be afraid to join in.
