Orange Bowl Asks Where ‘Country Roads’ Ranks Among Best CFB Traditions



When “Country Roads” starts playing at Milan Puskar Stadium, West Virginia football fans know their team won. But does the scene of Mountaineer Nation singing John Denver’s famous song top other iconic college football traditions as the best in the country?

The Orange Bowl official Twitter account posed the question that is often asked throughout every college football season about where WVU’s “County Roads” tradition ranks among the others. Alabama’s “Rammer Jammer” chant, Wisconsin creating rowdiness when their fans dance to “Jump Around” and Iowa fans waving to the nearby children’s hospital were selected as the other options to compete with WVU.

It’s worth noting the Orange Bowl categorized this as the best “in-game” tradition and West Virginia’s is the only one that doesn’t occur during the game, but happens after and only if the Mountaineers win. But “Country Roads” is also the only one of these that extends beyond just being part of college football too.

Trying not to be too biased here, where do you think “Country Roads” ranks among these, and any other, college football tradition.
