While people debate the best commercials, the most memorable plays, and the infamous halftime show, the most important part of any football event is the food. Even if some people are betting on the coin toss or the first score, there are two scenarios that ensure everyone wins. Here’s how to score free food during the Big Game.

A couple of big brands are making the Big Game even more watchable by serving up free food offers if certain scenarios happen during the four quarters. Back for the fifth year, Buffalo Wild Wings has its “overtime button.” Even though staying up a little late on Sunday night might lead to a sleepy Monday, the potential of free wings could be enough enticement to cheer for that tie.

According to the fast causal restaurant brand, if the Big Game is tied at the end of regulation, everyone can receive “six free boneless or traditional wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on Monday, February 27 from 4-7 p.m. local time.” The free food offer is available for dine-in, in-person take out only, no additional purchase is necessary, and while supplies last.

In addition to the Buffalo Wild Wings offer, DiGiorno is betting on the “doink” during the Big Game. For those unfamiliar with the term, a “doink” is where a kick hits the field goal crossbar. Chicago Bears fans might recall that double doink from a few years back. It did not end well for those football fans, but it often doesn’t.

If a kick hits the crossbar during the Big Game, everyone gets free DiGiorno pizza. It is not clear whether the kick has to be good or as long as it hits the crossbar counts. In order to receive the free pizza, fans need to enter their information on prior to the game.
