This Saturday, the South Carolina Gamecocks are traveling to Alabama to take on the Auburn Tigers, who are currently ranked No. 5 in the nation. Just because the game won't be happening in town this weekend doesn't mean you can't go out and showcase your team spirit! Gather up a group of friends and head to one of these local eateries to watch some football:

Carolina Ale House - With locations in the Vista and Harbison, Ale House is known for food, sports and fun with its sports-themed décor and wide selection of snacks and beer. The Vista location offers a rooftop patio where guests can watch the game and enjoy the cool October weather.

Wild Wing Café - Football and wings go together like spaghetti and meatballs, so when looking for a great place to watch the game, Wild Wing has you covered. Located in the VistaHarbison and the Village at Sandhill, Wild Wing serves up wings in just about every flavor you can think of that will keep you hungry and happy through all four quarters.

The British Bulldog Pub -Take a journey across the pond this weekend to The British Bulldog Pub. While you may raise your eyebrow at the idea of pairing English food with American football, you can never go wrong with fried pub fare and the Bulldog's seasonal list of craft beer is top notch. Bonus, the restaurant never gets too crowded during games, so it's a comfortable environment in which to cheer the Gamecocks to victory!

Pawleys Front Porch - With burgers and beer galore, plus a lovely outdoor deck, Pawleys has the food and atmosphere for a completely Southern night of college football.

The Southern Belly BBQ - No football-viewing spread would be complete without some good ‘ol barbecue. The menu here boasts masterfully crafted sandwiches that can't be beat and the intimate layout of the restaurant will have you making friends with fellow Gamecock fans in no time!

Henry's Grill and Bar - Take the whole family out to Henry's and enjoy watching the Gamecocks and Tigers go head to head in a kid-friendly atmosphere. Win or lose, end the night with one of their famous homemade desserts and head home with smiles on your faces.

Mellow Mushroom - For those of you looking for a place to view the game in Lexington, Mellow Mushroom has access to the SEC Network and some seriously delicious hand-tossed pizza. Whether you're a fan of Hey Dude, Kung Po or Magical Mystery Tour, there's a pie on the menu for everyone!

Rockaway Athletic Club - Nestled on Rosewood without any signage to be found, Rockaway is somewhat of a secret local spot that happens to be a great place for watching the Gamecocks take the field each week. The arcade games make for an entertaining way to spend halftime and the burgers are some of the best in town.

Wild Hare Sports Cafe - A big game calls for a place that serves big portions. Calm your nerves by ordering a few plates of Wild Hare's signature appetizers such as the potato cakes and chili cheese fries to share with the table! Located in the Vista and Irmo, there's plenty of space to go around!

The Publick House - There'll be fun on and off the screen this weekend as you play a game of billiards with a plate of pterodactyl wings by your side at Publick House!
