The college football fan’s ultimate bucket list

Tradition is the single biggest reason college football has gained so much popularity today. Every school has customs that make attending a football game a unique and enjoyable experience. For college football die-hard fans, there are several rituals that you must experience.

Because I am one of those die-hard fans who wants to visit each and every major college football stadium in the country, I have comprised the ultimate bucket list for college football fans.

If you eat, sleep, and live college football, here are 40 things you must experience before your final whistle:

  1. Belt out the words to “Rocky Top” inside Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium.
  2. Witness Steve Spurrier chuck his visor to the turf in person.
  3. Dress in your Sunday best and enjoy a game day tailgate party in The Grove at Ole Miss.
  4. Get a snapshot standing next to Paul “Bear” Bryant’s statue at Alabama.
  5. Attend two Michigan/Ohio State games, one in the Horseshoe, the other in the Big House.
  6. Spend New Year’s Day in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.
  7. Give your date a kiss after Texas A&M scores a touchdown at Kyle Field.
  8. Take a trip to the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend.
  9. Become part of the nation’s loudest crowd during a night game inside LSU’s “Death Valley.”
  10. “Jump Around” after the third quarter at Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium.

  19. Participate in a Penn State “white out” in Happy Valley.
  20. Bring your binoculars and grab a seat on Tightwad Hill to watch the Cal Bears…no ticket needed!
