Super Bowl XLVII promises some epic sibling rivalry between brothers Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, and John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. It’s also going to have Beyoncé. So, if you are not one of the 111 million Americans who typically tune in to view the biggest football game of the year, you probably should be this year. Not only will you get to witness Queen B add drunken football fans to the list of her disciples, but you’ll also have an excuse to sit for hours and forget about midterms, the chill outside and the fact that almost an hour of this highly-awaited game will be dedicated to commercials that could have paid for the entire student body’s tuition.
Of course, you’ll need some food to get you from kickoff to the final blow of the whistle. Whether you’re living in a dorm and need to find the best place to order in and watch the game or you’re throwing a party off-campus and want to make large amounts of easy, indulgent snacks for you and your friends, this guide is your go-to resource.
Lentil Hummus (for veggies and pita)
Boneless Buffalo Wings (They can be gluten-free too!)
Personal Pizzas (set up an assembly line of pitas, sauce, cheese and toppings so your guests can put together pizzas and wait for kickoff)
