Its football time in the USA.  The opening weekend for pigskin prognosticators and time to fire up the tailgating grill.  There are some fun and crazy traditions around university campuses at kickoff time.

According to Times News Feed, it’s time to get out the face paint.  Here are a few of their most famous traditions around the country and a few of our own.  Click on the links for a little YouTube fun.
