Wear Orange On ‘College Colors Day’

Friday September 2nd, 2011 is officially “College Colors Day” and fans are called to sport their team garb today, in honor of kickoff weekend. For the Miami Hurricanes, that chosen color in orange.

According to the College Colors Day website, “College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that make the college experience great by encouraging people across America to wear apparel of their favorite college or university throughout the day.

Additionally, College Colors Day, which coincides with ‘back to school’ and the kick-off of intercollegiate athletics, strives to advocate higher education through increased public awareness, and celebrates the achievements of colleges and universities, acknowledging their fundamental importance.

Since its inception in 2005, College Colors Day has grown rapidly across the country. Thousands of organizations and millions of individuals participate annually by donning their team colors and sharing in the college spirit with friends and colleagues.”

Use today to rep ‘The U’ and start the countdown because at 8pm ET on Monday night it’s Miami at Maryland, under the lights in College Park. Football is here, Canes fans. Rejoice.
