Florida State football is finally back and you can feel the excitement all throughout Tallahassee. Dozens of local bars held watch parties to showcase the Noles away game against Pittsburgh.


It's the new kid on the block. Madison Social is a bar in the growing college town area, right across the street from Doak Campbell stadium.

Monday night makes it the first FSU football game viewing for the bar, which just opened last week. Fans packed it with pride.

"We're seniors, it's our last year at FSU and we came out for the first game of the season, so go Noles!" said Jamie DePriest, who attended the bar with her friends.

"We know the Florida State fans are the best and we knew we'd get them in here," said Brian Mckenna, owner of Madison Social.

A lot of the hype around this game surrounds newly starting Quarterback, Jameis Winston, who many fans say they have faith in.

"Hopefully it will be a great season," said Devyn Birman, also attending the bar.

Several bars in Tallahassee had big nights planned for the big game. At Madison social, they say they were ready.

"We worked so hard to get to this point and finally to just get here, is unbelievable," Mckenna said.
