With Missouri's inaugural SEC season now complete, the Missourian would like to recognize those who demonstrated excellence in game day fashion and festivities.

We asked you for your nominations, and we combed through the hundreds of photos we've collected of fans over the season. Then, a group of journalists used a highly unscientific method to determine winners — we picked our favorites.

Below are the 2012 game day superlatives, fan photo style. 

Most "SEC appropriate" outfit

Most creative Missouri fan outfit (tie)

Most creative opposing fan outfit


Stephen Watts, 66, and Andrew Torber, 56, traveled from Birmingham, Ala., for the Alabama game. Torber said he had not missed an Alabama game, home or away, since 2006. Check out other Alabama fans during their time in Columbia here.
