College Football Tradition

Kickoff Chants

Updated January 30, 2004

In college football, lots of teams' fans have a special chant that occurs around the time of the kickoff. Usually, it takes place in one or more of three times: the time right before a kickoff, the kickoff itself, and the time immediately following the kickoff.

What I'm looking for is all of the chants I can get. Then I'll put them up on this site for everyone to enjoy. I'm really interested in these, as I don't really know a lot of them myself. So if you know of a college's "kickoff chant", send me e-mail with the college's name and the chant split up as shown below. Thanks for all your help!

A lot of these kickoff chants include stadium-side volley chants, where one side of the stadium yells one thing, and the other side yells something different in reply. These are shown in the form "Stadium - Chant 1 / Chant 2".
