Last week I brought you my 5th favorite thing about college football tailgating, Stadiums. Well this week the countdown continues wit my 4th favorite thing. COLOR! There are few things more colorful than a college football tailgate. If you have no idea what I am talking about then you really need to go to one! It takes going to a few different schools to really see the wide color palette. My college years were filled with the red and white scheme found at Wisconsin.
In Blacksburg, the Hokies wear their own brand of maroon and orange.
Alabama has their crimson, but they also have a pattern that is all their own!
The fall is known for its colors, but to me its not the colors of the leaves changing. Its the colors of campus on game day! I can’t wait to get out on the road and see a whole new array of color palettes!From Purple and Orange in Clemson to Maize and Blue in Ann Arbor, I can’t wait for this season’s palette!
