Tailgating at BGSU for college opener

BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

All eyes were on Bowling Green Thursday night for the college football opener.

It was Bowling Green versus Tulsa on the field, but in the parking lot: Findlay, Ohio and Grand Rapids, MI.

BGSU alumnus Rick Redd has been tailgating there for years. He says it's hard to beat the BGSU tailgate experience.

"[I'd say] in the world, we're in the top five," he said.

And from Grand Rapids came the Ford family. Justin Ford plays for BGSU, and his family attends games as often as they can.

"It's what every parent wants," said Randy, Justin's dad. "He's a great kid. Justin loves going to school here, his teammates are awesome. It's a great time."

No matter where they come from, it seems tailgating is a family affair.
