USU Aggie Fans Encouraged to Pledge Their Allegiance for College Colors Day
Friday, Aug. 10, 2012
Utah State University Aggie fans near and far will have a chance to show their school pride on a world-wide stage, as USU is participating in the inaugural “Pledge Your Allegiance for College Colors Day” online competition.
The website-based rivalry competition, which includes 165 participating colleges and universities and is an element of this year’s 2012 College Colors Day celebration, leading up to College Colors Day Friday, Aug. 31. Throughout the competition, standings will be tracked nationally, as well as by conference.
College Colors Day, which is the annual event that encourages people across the country to wear the colors of their favorite college or university to promote the college experience, is celebrated nationwide Aug. 31, meaning USU fans will have two-straight days to show their Aggie pride — first at the USU football season opener Thursday, Aug. 30 against in-state foe Southern Utah at 6 p.m. (MT) at Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium and again on College Colors Day.
By pledging their loyalty and support for Utah State online, Aggie fans can register to pledge their allegiance to Utah State as the school with the most college spirit and loyal fan base. All registrants are entered to win weekly $50 gift cards from ESPN Shop and one of two grand prizes, including a $500 college shopping spree at ESPN Shop.
The competing school with the most registrants at the online site at the end of the month will win the prestigious College Colors Day Spirit Cup and $10,000 toward the school’s general scholarship fund.
College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that embody the college experience by encouraging fans across America to wear their favorite college or university apparel throughout the day Friday, Aug. 31.
The inaugural national spirit competition is presented by The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), a division of IMG College, and NCAA Football.
Aggie fans are also encouraged to share the Pledge Your Allegiance for College Colors Day competition through Facebook.
