3 college football teams that know how to make an entrance

College football is huge in the US, and the pomp and circumstance of a game day almost rival that of an NFL game. One of the biggest parts of a game day ceremony is when the home team makes their entrance. Some college football teams make more of a production of this than others. Check out these three college football teams that know how to make an entrance.

1. Clemson University

Clemson University is in South Carolina; their football team, the Clemson Tigers, knows how to make an entrance. The Tigers have a crazy interesting history as to why their entrance is the way it is. The team actually exits the stadium and takes buses up and around the stadium so they end up on one of the end zones. Above the end zone is the hill and Howard’s Rock. The team stands at the top of the hill and runs down it together. Before they run down it they touch Howard’s Rock. Howard was a previous coach of the team and brought back this rock from California. The rock is considered lucky, and each team member touches it on their run down the hill.

Watch the full entrance below:

2. Virginia Tech

The Virginia Tech football team’s entrance is more about ramping up the crowd than it is about a tradition. For starters, a marching band plays (like at most college football games) and there’s a bunch of cheers that make their way through the screaming crowd. Next Metallica’s Enter Sandman starts to play, amping up the crowd even more and causing some of the band to jump. Finally, the team runs out after the crowd has been amped up sufficiently.

3. The University of Colorado Boulder

The University of Colorado Boulder’s football team, the Colorado Buffalo’s, chases after a real live buffalo for their entrance. We’re not kidding. They have a buffalo in a pen that’s been harnessed and has a couple of cowboys holding the reins. They release the buffalo and run along beside it and the football team runs along behind it.

These three college football teams seriously know how to make an entrance, and they aren’t the only ones. A home team’s entrance into their stadium is supposed to create a fervor in the crowd and amp everyone up. These teams completely succeed at it.
