Best College Eats: The Championship Game

By: Cooking Channel

We're down to the final two competitors in our Best College Eats tournament, and this championship game is guaranteed to be messy. We've got Marquette University and the  Real Chili Restaurant serving up a sloppy, satisfying  chili-topped bowl of spaghetti taking on Baylor University and   Vitek’s BBQ, who is dishing up the restaurant's famous  Gut Pak, a fully-loaded plate of corn chips topped with brisket, sausage, beans and so much more.

Which of these two gut-busters will be named the Best College Eat? Vote for your favorite below.

Note: Voting for the championship round will last longer with the polls closing Friday, April 5th, at 5pm ET.
