If there’s anything that can add to a gameday atmosphere better than the actual stadium, it’s the pre- and post-game bar.

The Daily Meal ranked the top 25 college bars for 2013, and they had strict guidelines and a ranking structure. Be sure and check that out.

Three SEC town bars made the cut. South Carolina fans can double dip. They can head to Pavlov’s in Columbia and hit up the Knight Library at UCF in late September.

  1. I love Bourbon. But I’m a bit surprised it was the bar picked from Athens. I mean Boar’s Head, Whiskey Bent, and especially Magnolia’s and The Globe are what most people go to hear in Athens. Not to say I think Bourbon is a drop off, but I wouldn’t have pegged it as the bar from Athens to be picked for this list.

  2. Pavlov’s, really? I don’t know about that one. It’s not really that great of a bar… Just sayin’

  3. Bourbon Street? Really?
