Beginning during the 2015 NCAA football season, Yocco's gained exposure on the popular college football podcast The Solid Verbal Allentown resident Ty Hildenbrandt, one of the show's hosts, pays homage to Yocco's during weekly preview shows by selecting at least one team each week as the "Yocco's Home Dog of the Week" To be selected as a Home Dog, a team must be an underdog playing at their home stadium, where Hildenbrandt thinks that they can win despite the odds being in favor of their opponents4 This designation does not indicate any sponsorship of The Solid Verbal by Yocco's Rather, it is a humorous tribute based on Hildenbrandt's affinity for the restaurant and the linguistic connection between "underdog" and "hot dog"
