Where to Watch USC, UCLA, U-Dub, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, South Carolina, Notre Dame and Nebraska Games in the South Bay
The spirit and passion of college football soars in the South Bay Beach Cities each fall like kickoffs in the air.
Alumni from throughout the West Coast and especially the Midwest descend on the bars on and around the Hermosa Beach Pier like fans to a tailgate party.
They gather in groups big and small, wearing school shirts or team jerseys and cheer and scream at the TVs showing their game as if they were at the stadium and the players and coaches could hear their every word. They hang together, some gathering as early as 9 in the morning for their games, and stay throughout the day. At all times, they keep beer and drinks within reach.
