Hungry for a win? Channel your football team's victorious energy with Bojangles' newly designed Big Bo Boxes commemorating ten of the South's favorite NFL and college football teams. The launch comes after Bojangles' sold Carolina Panthers Big Bo Boxes last year in a successful trial run.

The beloved Charlotte-based eatery announced the launch of these boxes earlier this week, which are available in select markets for a limited-time only, as part of eight-, 12-, or 20-piece tailgate specials. In addition to delicious fried chicken, each box comes with your choice of home-style fixin’s, biscuits, Legendary Iced Tea, plus cups, plates, and utensils. (Though if you're looking to minimize your tailgate's carbon footprint, consider holding the mealtime accessories and bringing your own compostable or reusable sets.)

"Kicking off with our hometown team was a great test last year,” said Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer for Bojangles’ in a company press release. “It’s even more exciting to expand to a new NFL market for the 2019-2020 season and feature some of the top college football programs in the nation, such as the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs. These new boxes allow fans to not just throw a tailgate but own the tailgate with Bojangles.”

In addition to the football teams mentioned above, the collection will include the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee State University, James Madison University, University of South Carolina, University of Virginia, and Western Carolina University. Thankfully, for sports fan remiss to expose themselves to other teams' monikers, the Big Bo Box will only be for sale at restaurants in the team's primary market(s)—apologies if you relocated across state lines post-school.
