Got the pre-game jitters yet? UW takes on Michigan in college football’s national championship Monday, Jan. 8 at 4:30 p.m. — and the city is amped up.

Sure, you can watch the game at home on ESPN as you squeeze a stress ball. But major Seattle sports moments like this don’t come around often — so it’ll be a lot more fun to join locals howling for the Dawgs.

Grab your purple gear, brush up on the talking points, and check out one of these watch parties.
