The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Deep-Fried Region: (2) Fried Chicken vs. (15) French Fries

One of the greats versus a classic deep-fried side.

Dan Davis

No. 2 Fried Chicken

Whether you picked up a 12-piece from Popeyes or are frying your own cut-up bird yourself, everybody loves fried chicken. Tenders from Canes or your favorite grocery stop, in a brown paper bag from a gas's hard to go wrong here.

No. 15 French Fries

Another side item that's always around and goes with almost anything else in this bracket, be it chicken, fish or some other seafood. And if you really want to be creative, you'll find a way to melt some cheese on them or toss ‘em in some gravy or something. Maybe throw ‘em on a po'boy.
