We're following College GameDay this week to the Fargodome in Fargo, North Dakota to watch the Cardinals of the University of the Incarnate Word take on the North Dakota State Bison. Whether you're traveling to Fargo to get your game-day on or watching this week's match up from the comfort of your couch, we've got a menu lineup that's sure to satisfy.

Watching from home? Catch the game at 3:30 EST.

Rooting for the Cardinals this week? Serve up a spread of red and black favorites.

As easy way to start? Cupcakes! You can make our tasty recipe from scratch, or pick up naked cupcakes from your local grocery store and decorate them yourself with red and black sprinkles:


Another tasty and easy dessert that brings out your team adoration? Red velvet sheet cake. It transports easily, so you won't miss a lick of frosting when you arrive at your tailgate:

Sheet cake is a must, as it was practically invented in the Lone Star State, and the University of the Incarnate Word sits proudly in San Antonio, Texas. So clearly we'd be completely remiss if we didn't mention classic Texas favorites that must be enjoyed, like melt-in-your-mouth brisket.:
