Iowa State has the best tailgating for several reasons. First and foremost is the layout of the stadium and the adjacent parking lots. The area immediately surrounding the Jack Trice Stadium is a sea of cardinal and gold with malted beverages and haute cuisine. I've never been around a fan base that is more eager to get a complimentary cold beverage and a brat in the hands of complete strangers. Leave your wallet at home, make some new friends, grab a Grain Belt and gather around the spread of pulled pork, paella and scotcheroos. --Chuggable
Iowa Iowa has the best tailgating, and puts Iowa State's to shame. From the student housing directly to the south and west of the stadium, the food vendors on Melrose Avenue set up in people's front yards, and the parking lots surrounding the stadium to the north and west filled with cars, RVs, and buses from around the state. It's no wonder the university refuses to put up lights for night games -- people would still start tailgating at 6:30 a.m.! --holstejohn

Yes.... they forgot to mention that tailgating in Iowa City is mainly done in parking ramps or in areas that are 2 miles from the stadium. Since there is relatively no parking near the stadium it is technically not really tailgating. Food vendors? House parties? If you don't cook your own food and if you aren't stationed next to your vehicle that is within a 2 minute walk to the stadium then it definitely isn't tailgating.
