College sports' traditions are an instrumental part of the sports themselves. However, many sports fans might only be aware of their alma mater's traditions, as well as a few other famous ones.

While many fans are familiar with Ohio State University's Script Ohio and Texas A&M's The 12th Man, hundreds of colleges and universities across multiple sports have their own lesser-known traditions that might not get the attention that they deserve.

As an avid fan of sports and the traditions that accompany them, I have written a book to showcase well-known and obscure traditions in every collegiate sport. Over 1,500 traditions (many over a hundred years old) have been gathered and categorized.

I hope that you enjoy the book, and if you are aware of traditions that I may have missed, please submit them via the Input A Tradition form, or email them to me at
