College Food Fight Tournament championship: Waffle House vs. Popeyes for eternal glory

New, comments

After five days of voting, only two chain restaurants remain in our quest to find the most college football-friendly food in the land. Can the Popeyes upset machine knock off the Waffle House juggernaut?

Two Southern icons are left standing with a college football prize on the line. Thus, our college football food tournament looks a lot like college football does sometimes, huh?

Below, the tale of the tape, followed by the weekend's poll and our final BONUS BATTLE: bourbon vs. all other spirits.

Polls will remain open until Monday morning. Rules and proceedings. If comments don't load due to all the HTLM here, refresh. I'll drop in a comment with the bracket as it stands. Let's get after it.
