They didn't expect it to be such a hit about 8 years ago when they transformed a two car garage into football party central but that's what happened.
Rick and Kristi Reid, Gary and Diane Stanley, and garage owners Kevin and Julie Sweetman decided way back that they like to be outside for college football parties Their friends agree.
Every Saturday during the season, three flags are posted at the front of the driveway In Council Bluffs bearing the colors of three favorite teams: Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
"We have a lot of Sooner fans," said Kevin Sweetman in an interview with Channel 6 News. "That includes our next door neighbors, the Stanleys."
Actually Gary Stanley is a Husker fan, it's his wife Diane who wears the Oklahoma garb on game day.
"Even my granddaughter is a Sooner fan," she explained.
With four televisions, one for each corner of the garage, there is plenty to cheer about at all times.
In fact for a while on Saturday, the Husker-Southern Miss game was on at the same time as the Oklahoma-West Virginia game.
A spirited Huskers cheer was answered with a resounding Sooners cheer, and the back and forth seemed like the rivalry days of old.
"It's all good natured," said Diane Stanley. "We all respect the game."
The walls of the garage are decorated with items depicting each of the teams and the history of fun-filled gatherings is documented in one area called "the wall of shame."
The wall is plastered with pictures and one in particular is unusual.
"Those are the famous Clydesdales," said Kevin Sweetman as he pointed to a picture. "I have a friend who actually brought them here!"
The ninety degree weather was no problem for the garage party on Saturday. A cooling mist sprayer was installed for comfort.
Drop by in November on game day and you'll see a crowd as well. "We'll have the gas heaters fired up," said Sweetman. "It's a college football party garage!"
