The heart and soul of the college football experience is the passionate fanbases that support their teams rain or shine, and each week Sports Illustrated combs through the thousands of photos to find those that show the most intense, clever, or just plain weird fans in the stands at NCAA games.
Clemson Fans Are Ready For The Flood
South Carolina was under siege from Hurricane Joaquin over the weekend, but that did not stop the Clemson faithful from showing up for a big win over then-undefeated Notre Dame, but they were prepared life jackets just in case Death valley turned into an ark.
South Beach Glitz Meets Cincinnati Grit
A different type of hurricane came to Cincinnati on Monday when Miami fell to the Bearcats, and brought together two outlandish fanbases each with their own style. Miami fans got out the finest bedazzled game gear while Cincinnati fans gave up on clothes in favor of paint.
BYU Fans Hungry for a Win
BYU beat UConn 30–13 on Staurday, and for some reason these Cougars fans dressed as food items. If it was a ploy to get someone to take their picture and put it on the internet, then it worked!
A Trojan in Tigerland
One San Jose State fan not only traveled all the way to Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium but he put on a rubber Spartan helmet and cape to support his team. His cheers failed to lift Sanjose State though, as they fell 35–21 to the Tigers.
