SWOSU Plans Cook-off Challenge and Other Fun at Home Football Games

Area groups as well as Southwestern Oklahoma State University organizations are invited to participate in the Cook-off Challenge at all remaining home football games this season on the Weatherford campus.

A fun time of tailgating, cook-off contests and fun are planned at each of the games. Free food and drinks, inflatable games, TVs and more are provided at each of the games for the benefit of all fans. 

The SWOSU Department of Residence Life & Housing has also organized its popular cook-off contests—open to the public as well as students—that feature free shirts and 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 15 —BBQ
  • October 6 —Fiesta Tacos
  • October 13 — Best Burger
  • October 27 – Chili
  • November 10 —Exotic Game
