New foods will be on the menu at Lucas Oil Stadium for fans attending the National College Football Championship Playoff game and pre-events.
The specialty menu for Monday’s game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia will include specialty hot dogs and shrimp tacos honoring the teams. Add in the Crimson Tide Dog, a quarter pound grilled hot dog topped with pulled pork and onion straws and drizzled with a spicy barbecue sauce; and Bulldog Shrimp Tacos, featuring Grilled Cajun Shrimp and Grilled Peaches, topped with Peach Pico de Gallo and Peach Cream Sauce.
They will be available at multiple General Concourse locations throughout the stadium.

The heavy hot dog is also a featured food during the Pregame Fan Central Playoff at the Indiana Convention Center Saturday through Monday, along with Bulldog Brisket Sliders, piled high with slow-roasted meat and homemade mac and cheese and drizzled with Dr Pepper. . Barbecue sauce.
The new creations are from Shimelis Adem, Lucas Oil Stadium Executive Chef for Sodexo Live! (formerly called Centerplate) and will cost $ 12 each.
