HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

For the second week in a row, the University of Southern Mississippi hosted a home football game Saturday. And that meant thousands of Golden Eagle fans gathered again for a second week of tailgating activities.

It included cooking and eating many different foods.      

Gridiron grill masters across campus could be seen cooking hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken wings and other items for family and friends before the USM-Austin Peay contest.  

We spoke with many of those Saturday chefs to get their secrets on making great tailgating treats. 

"You've got to take care of the burgers, you can't flip them too much," said Joze Debevec, a USM student from George County, who was cooking for a group of about one dozen people. "The heat has to be right, it's got to be just right."        

"Make sure your fire is right, make sure your charcoal is all lit right, and just put your meat on there and let it go," said Michael Dorsey, an Austin Peay fan who was tailgating with a large group of fans.    

"The marinade is really where it's all made, you've got to have it marinaded, you've got to prep it," said Nathan Herrin, a USM graduate who was cooking for another large group of fans.  

Southern Miss defeated Austin Peay 52-6.
