Round 1: Best College Eats

**Voting for Round 1 is now closed. Voting for the Sweet Sixteen can be found here.**

It’s time for March Madness, the top sporting event of Spring where top college basketball teams battle it out to see who will come away as #1 in the nation, with all sorts of highs and lows, upsets and outstanding performances along the way. Well, we at Cooking Channel decided the madness shouldn’t be reserved just for basketball and college mascots. This year, we’re pitting the best college dishes from across the country against each other in our Bracket Battle: Best College Eats tournament.

To qualify, the dish had to be 1) near the college campus, 2) be pretty much a staple for students and, of course, 3) be absolutely awesome. The schools selected didn’t have to excel at basketball; they just needed to rock at satisfying late night munchies. After much gluttonous eating (mostly by reviewers on various food sites; like we had a budget to travel the nation), we’ve narrowed it down to these 32 dishes for our Best College Eats.

Below, you’ll find the First Round Match-Ups. The schedule for our Bracket Battle is:

  • March 15th – March 21st: First Round
  • March 22nd – March 26th: Sweet Sixteen
  • March 27th – March 31st: Elite Eight
  • April 1st – April 3rd: Final Four
  • April 4th – April 5th: Championship Voting
  • April 5/6th: The winner of the Best College Eats is announced

And in addition to battling it out to see which dish is The. Best. College. Eat., the ever-talented folks at the Food Network Kitchens made at-home versions of all these dishes. This way, you can have your (Veishea cherry) pie and actually eat it, too.

    It's amazing how basketball improved from how it started. Seems like things became more and more interesting like of how students could make their lives easier using this site
    My friend introduced this site to me. He said that it could help student increase their grades? Not only that! He also said that this site pays students up to 700 dollars per course just by taking notes. I really wonder if it's true. Anyone heard of it?

    I really love college basketball. I enjoy the competition of each and every school participating. I am a student and I am earning money by taking notes. Last semester, I earned 700 dollars for one course just taking notes and I'm sure I could have earned more if I worked hard :)

    Actually Satoshi Tajiri created pokemon. Ken Sugimori is the cheif illustrator for pokemon. Although there is a whole team that creates designs he draws the final designs based upon the teams concepts. So when people say pokemon are not original all the final designs were drawn up by Sugimori himself.

    As for education he did not go to college but attended Tokyo National College of Technology, a technical school where he studied electronics.
