As entertaining as the on-field product in college football venues across the country is, one of the greatest parts of the sport is everything in the stadium that surrounds the game itself.
A few traditions come to mind right away. "Jump Around" at Wisconsin. The Gator chomp at Florida. There are several others, and plenty of them are phenomenal. But one could make the argument that Virginia Tech has carved out a gameday niche that's entirely its own.

If you get goose bumps watching this on your computer screen, just imagine how it would feel to be at Lane Stadium in the midst of the action.
