Football fashion in the South

The South is known for taking a lot of things seriously, like Chick-fil-A, sweet tea and church on Sundays. But let's not forget the most important thing of all: college football.


In SEC territory, college football is just the understood language when the weekends roll around. If you're not talking Dawgs, 'Bama or Gators, are you even talking? In recent years, there seems to be a growing interest in more than just the football. Game goers aren't only worrying about what's on the scoreboard but also, and maybe more importantly, what to wear. If you're heading to a football game on a fall weekend in the South, it goes without saying that jeans and a team t-shirt simply will not do.Your game-day closet is filled with dresses, blazers, button-downs and even suits in your team’s signature color.


It may sound ridiculous to some, but it isn't just attire to fans, it's a tradition.


We want to hear from sharp-dressing college football fans. What is your go-to outfit on game day? Share a photo of yourself in your best game day attire. After all, this is what college football is really about.


On CNN: Game day in the South? No T-shirts, please
