Can I be honest? I've been in Tuscaloosa for going on three years and only been to an Alabama game one time. I've learned a few gameday traditions since then.

Gameday in Tuscaloosa is a huge deal. Just this year for the first home game against Mercer, my wife experienced her first one. Although she didn't attend the game, she saw firsthand how bad traffic gets, how packed the stores and bars are, and how hyped everyone is about gameday.

While discussing gameday around the office, I happened to notice that I didn't know a lot about popular gameday traditions.

After experiencing my first game and getting some tips from Tide fans around the office, I've come up with a shortlist of gameday traditions. Don't be afraid to send me the gameday traditions you know about inside our free app chat feature.
