We here at the Gothamist Sports desk - it's a small and cluttered desk - generally like all sports and one that doesn't get much press in New York (except maybe for this article). The season started in late August and there is already talk of post season Bowls, but there is still football to be played. While there is a surely a segment of the population that could care less about college football, or even sports in general, there is also a segment of New Yorkers that do. At times, depending on the team one follows, it's hard to find fellow fans or your game on television. That's where alumni associations and their viewing parties come into play.

Fight songs, cow bells, school colors and several of your fellow fans. We've done a little legwork and compiled a list of some schools that gather on fall Saturdays to watch their teams play. Thanks to all the clubs that responded to our e-mails. The list is nowhere near comprehensive, so if we missed anything, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Of course, don't forget to check out the Gothamist Top 15.
