Summer’s not even done cooking yet, but already it’s time for college football. Virginia’s teams are nowhere to be found among the top college football rankings, but that’s why they play the games, right?
Virginia’s an underdog, too, but by only a field goal, to Brigham Young. (Game time is 3:30, and it’s on ESPN2.)
Keep an eye out for the local guy.
Virginia Tech: Vienna’s Jack Tyler, No. 58, at outside linebacker. (Full Virginia Tech football roster.)
Virginia: Nobody local but here’s the full roster.
And good news for football addicts: Your fellow junkies will certainly be there to support you at several establishments in and near Georgetown where you can watch the games.
1. Mason Inn
2408 Wisconsin Ave. NW
Why: Mason Inn in Glover Park is the official DC watch bar for the Ole Miss Rebels and a satellite bar for the University of Georgia Bulldogs, Auburn Tigers, Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks. With $9 Bud light pitchers ad $4 mimosas, Mason Inn has plenty of food, beer and spirited company to carry you through the game.
3295 M St., NW
Why: Official home of the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Ohio State Buckeyes, Rhino Bar serves up hundreds of chickens wings each weekend during the fall to hungry fans.
529 23rd St. South Arlington, Va. (Metro accessible)
Why: It's worth it to cross over the Potomac River to Virginia if your favorite team is playing at Crystal City Sports Pub. And since they have over 100 TV’s, your chances of catching the big game are good. Check their schedule online to see which games are playing this weekend.Did we miss one?
