WHAT DO THEY WEAR?

SI's cameras focus on a football weekend and come back with the answers. West coast: Bermuda shorts; full skirts and jumpers; cashmere sweaters. Midwest: Skirts long and slim, or above knee; fancy vests; tweed jackets. East coast: Khakis; Shetland sweaters and jackets; jumpers and shorts.

WEST COAST
Stanford students wear Bermuda shorts, socks with name hand-knit in angora, while setting up card stunts before the game. During the game (right) the student cheering section is 40-yard stretch of white shirts and blouses. Girls wear full skirts, as many as four petticoats. Cashmere sweaters (below) are California favorites with khaki pants and the new jumpers.

MIDWEST
Michigan State coeds contrast the long slim skirts they've been wearing since 1946 with this year's kilt-length variety, wear both with white crew socks. The men at East Lansing are as well dressed an any Ivy Leaguer in tweed jackets, flannel slacks, tattersall vests. At Michigan State and coast to coast: white bucks, loud Argyles, blazer jackets and khaki pants.

EAST COAST
Yale men have two uniforms: Shetland tweed jackets worn with button-down shirts and flannel trousers; Shetland crew-neck sweaters and khaki pants. Dates for the weekend wear man-tailored shirts with jumpers to fraternity parties and the game, Bermuda shorts Saturday morning. Coast-to-coast campus hits: jumpers and shorts.
