It's no surprise that college football fans like to eat and eat big — because football and food go together, according to former college and NFL player Todd Blackledge.

"There's just such a close association between food and football in the college atmosphere," Blackledge told "The Steve Malzberg" on Newsmax TV.

"Whether it's tailgate, whether it's a restaurant you want to go to before or after the game, or where you went when you were going to school there, where your dad took you when he went to a game, whatever it is — it's undeniable."

Blackledge — a Penn State star quarterback, who went on to play with the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers, and is now a television football analyst — is co-author with J.R. Rosenthal of "Taste of the Town: A Guided Tour of College Football's Best Places to Eat."

The book, published by Center Street, also contains numerous recipes.

"We have over 100 recipes from chefs and restaurants all around the country. So it's a got a little bit of something for everybody."

The book is inspired by Blackledge's popular "Taste of the Town" halftime segment on ESPN.
