Tailgates, rituals and attire: Game day in the SEC

Saturday, November 26, 2011 | 12:01 a.m. CST; updated 3:42 p.m. CDT, Thursday, August 30, 2012
Alabama fans cheer at a 2007 game at Bryant-Denny Stadium. While students at SEC schools are known to dress up, attire at Alabama games runs from very casual to dressy. Fans wear a lot of Bama gear, said Calvin Brown, the university's director of alumni affairs.

Missouri's switch to the Southeastern Conference brings a whole new way of looking at game day.

Here's how a football weekend stacks up at the other 12 teams currently in the SEC. Texas A&M will join the SEC with Missouri for the 2012-2013 season.

The material came from university alumni centers, athletic departments, sportswriters, restaurant owners and spirit-wear retailers.
