Football season, it’s good to see you.

What’s happening: Labor Day weekend signals the official start of college football season across the country. While American Airlines did add 68 new direct flights to make it easier for you to get to game, sometimes you may prefer to watch the action from Charlotte.

What they’re saying: “Come for tons of TVs, great food and drink specials, weekly game-day raffles and giveaways [and] hanging out with other alumni,” says Blake Barnette, who helps coordinate Ole Miss alumni watch parties.

Here are 26 places to watch college football in Charlotte this season.
