If you want to tailgate, pay $40 and park at the golf course directly across Stadium Blvd. from the stadium. You can drink, bring in a grill or picnic food, play whatever lawn games you want to bring, toss a football/frisbee, etc.
If you're looking for a bar, head either to campus area (South University between Forest and State and State between South U and Huron) or downtown (Main Street between roughly William and Huron) or both. You'll find plenty of bars/restaurants full of both people in town for the game and students. You can walk between these areas and the stadium.
I would suggest the golf course. It's a great time on game days.
