In his three-year career with the Cincinnati Bearcats, Sauce Gardner recorded 68 solo tackles, 99 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, 16 passes defended, and nine interceptions that he returned for 103 yards and two touchdowns. Gardner was a promising cornerback coming out of college football and is a candidate for defensive rookie of the year entering the season. This partnership seems like a sauce match made in the food heavens. The rookie cornerback is also holding a “signed with Sauce” event at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Wayne, New Jersey on September 1st.

With the NFL season right around the corner, Buffalo Wild Wings and Gardner are prepared to start the season off right, with sauce.
