Paperback Reading Length: 355 pages

Embark on a true story of an annual quest for rivalry and revelry surrounding some of the most legendary college football contests. With deep roots in this beloved pastime, one dedicated couple uncovers the history behind the sport's most recognized venues and hilarious traditions. (Who knew a Pit Bull Terrier named "Pig" was the original mascot for the University of Texas?)

Sporting a rich cast of real-life personalities, This Year's Game reveals how college football is steeped in this country and how much it matters to students, alumni, and our society - regardless of the size of the stadium or the size of the players. Unexpectedly, you'll discover how fans - both friend and foe - are willing to welcome outsiders into their communities, customs, and companionships.
