The Bham Now Team Celebrates #CollegeColorsDay

As college football season is (finally) here, so is another tradition: College Colors Day! This annual celebration is observed nationwide by students, parents, family, fans, and alumni. To celebrate, all you have to do is wear your college team’s colors or college/university apparel.

The Bham Now team has decided to honor this tradition by donning our colors and answering some questions about our beloved schools! The team represents 4 Birmingham area universities; Samford University, the University of Alabama, the University of Montevallo (which does not have a football team), and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (which had a football team, then didn’t, now has one again – YAY).
