There’s nothing like a good first impression. And no sport does it better across the board than the sport of football. We are forced to wait a full week between games, and that’s during the season. The off-season feels so long it’s painful.
But when the band forms that familiar formation, and the team is cocked and loaded inside the tunnel waiting to explode onto the field, there aren’t many better feelings.
My allegiances aside, here are my favorite entrances in all of college football.

Being that our stores are based in Tennessee, you probably know exactly what this is. And will watch it anyways. Why? Because it generates those little bumps on your arms.
#4. East Carolina
What the heck? ECU? The Pirates? What are they doing on here?
Let me count the ways.
- Awesome pirate ship they USED to come out of, now it’s a skull.
- Legit looking pirate mascot.
- Purple Smoke
#5. Florida State
Having seen this in person, it’s pretty special. Chief Osceola, Renegade, it should be on anyone’s bucket list to make it to a FSU/Miami game.
So who is number 1?
#1. Virginia Tech
You know it’s big when ESPN goes out of their way to edit it like this. Well done, Hokies.
