College football snacks made easy: New $10 Weekend Buckets from KFC

Original recipe

I went to Ohio State. It was never my dream or intention to go to a Big Ten school, but it just happened to work out that way. Somehow I got immersed into college football. I'm not crazy diehard, I don't sit in the same chair while watching the game or not wash a certain shirt all season, but if I'm home, and the game is on, I'll watch it.
