College Playoff Fan Central

On Sunday, I went down to San Jose to check out the College Playoff Fan Central at San Jose McEnery Convention Center. The College Football Playoff Championship game was being held in nearby Santa Clara. Next to McEnery Convention they had a Playoff Fan Central Park or what they called The Quad. I didn't really take many pictures there because it was pouring down rain:

But the ESPN guys were broadcasting:

Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow making a point
But I went inside where it was dry and warm:

Former Alabama great Derrick Henry's Helmet and current Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa's jersey

Stanford running back Bryce Love's helmet

One of the coolest things is that they had all of the actual trophies of the so-called New Year's Six Bowl games:

Rose Bowl Trophy

Sugar Bowl Classic Trophy

Playstation Fiesta Bowl Trophy

Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl
And the two playoff bowl games:

Oragne Bowl Trophy-The helmets of the two teams were missing but it was Oklahoma vs. Alabama

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Trophy
But the coolest thing was that there was a thing for teachers sponsored by Extra Yard for Teachers that celebrated teachers and had its own lounge and everything. It was pretty cool and since I am a teacher I enjoyed it. But they had a surprise and that was the first 25 teachers who came in got two free tickets to the game:

On Sunday I was number 25-Woo Hoo. I will be blogging about the game on Monday.


  1. My son would LOVE that place! And lucky you - have a great time at the game!

  2. Congratulations on your win of two tickets. That rocks. I'll await your game post.

    Hope you had a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Patrick. 😎

  3. That looks so awesome! They really set the place up nice :)
