SWOSU Plans Tailgating and Cook-Off Contests this Fall

Football season is fast approaching with Southwestern Oklahoma State University kicking off its home season on September 9 and once again, a fun time of tailgating, cook-off contests and fun are planned on the Weatherford campus.

The SWOSU Department of Residence Life & Housing is organizing its popular cook-off contests—open to the general public as well as students—that feature large cash prizes. During each home football game, the entrants compete for $500 first place, $200 second place and $100 third place awards. There is no entry fee.

Teams are responsible for bringing their own grill, but electric grills are not permitted. Entrants will be scored in five categories—theme, appearance, execution, taste, and how paired items complement each other.

There will be a different theme each home game. Themes are:

  • September 9th—“Show Us Your Dawg” (Hot Dogs)
  • September 30th—BBQ
  • October 14th—Exotic / Game
  • November 4th—Burgers
