What Gameday Looks Like At These College Campuses (PHOTOS)

Tailgating is a time-honored tradition for American college students, especially at big state universities or D-1 athletic schools. It's great because you don't actually have to know anything about sports, just come filled with pride for your college.

We combed through some of the hashtags people were using to post photos from gameday -- #rolltide #HookEm #nolenation -- and collected a batch of images to show what tailgaiting is like at various campuses around the country. For good measure, we included a few shots from inside the stadiums too, because how could we not show off people using jetpacks and parachutes above the football field?!

Check out the images below, and if you want us to add yours, tweet it to us: @HuffPostCollege or @HuffPostPhoto.
