University of Alabama students and fans have earned a national reputation for their devotion to the Crimson Tide. On Friday, September 3, all supporters of the Crimson Tide can show their spirit as part of the national celebration of College Colors Day.
The event is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the overall college experience by encouraging people across America to wear apparel featuring the school colors of their favorite college or university. It coincides nationally with many back to school events and the first football weekend of the 2010 season for numerous schools.
Alabama fans everywhere are encouraged to wear crimson and white on Sept. 3 as they prepare for the football season opener against San Jose State, set for Saturday, Sept. 4, at 6 p.m. in the newly expanded Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“I am urging all of our loyal fans to show their support on College Colors Day,” said Director of Athletics Mal Moore. “Our tremendous fans always show their passion for the Crimson Tide. This is one more opportunity to do that yet again.”
College Colors Day was initiated by Collegiate Licensing Company in partnership with NCAA Football as an additional means of increasing public awareness about the contributions and achievements of higher education, acknowledging their fundamental importance.
