ESPN names top 5 traditions in college football, snubs SEC
Traditions are a big part of what makes college football so special to all of its fans. ESPN recently named the sport’s top five traditions and the SEC is surprisingly absent from the list.
Ohio State’s “dotting the i” in script Ohio on the field in games at Ohio Stadium, widely referred to as The Horsehoe, comes in at No. 1, followed by Clemson players touching Howard’s Rock as they run down the hill before home football games. The cadet march at Army-Navy games checks in at No. 3. Colorado mascot Ralphie’s run gets the No. 4 spot while No. 5 goes to the recent Kinnick Wave at Iowa games.
It’s certainly surprising to see the SEC as the only Power 5 conference left out of the top five. So much for ESPN’s “SEC bias.”
