From August 23-25, at the Charlotte Merchandise Mart, schools went head to head in a grilling and tailgate showdown to determine the best of the best.
Over 100 proud 49er fans showed up in their green and gold to cheer the UNC Charlotte team. Even Norm and “The Normbulance” lent support by coming out and whipping up the crowd. UNC Charlotte did a full sweep, winning all categories: Taste, Team spirit, Flair, Creativity and Originality, and Best of Show.
Way to go Niners! Bring that grill technique to tailgating at 49ers football this fall.
