STILLWATER - Oklahoma State University, due to a tailgating crowd that has quadrupled in the past decade, has been named as one of the 15 finalists for Southern Living magazine's "The South's Best Tailgate" contest.
Fans will ultimately decide the winner by voting daily until Sept. 30 on southernliving.com/tailgate or via smartphone by scanning the corresponding image in the September issue with the Digimarc Discover app. One vote per person per day is counted toward the final tally, and votes cast on Saturday count twice.
Voters are entered daily for a chance to win $2,500 toward an ultimate tailgate. Southern Living will crown the winner of "The South's Best Tailgate" at a home game this fall.
OSU's competition includes; Appalachian State University, Clemson University, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, Marshall University, Texas A&M University, University of Alabama, University of Georgia, University of Mississippi, University of Tennessee, University of Texas, Vanderbilt University, Virginia Tech and West Virginia University.
OSU and the 14 other finalists will be featured in the September issue of Southern Living, on newsstands Aug. 23.
