The Collegiate Licensing Company, a division of IMG College, has partnered with NCAA Football and ESPN.com for a national spirit competition in advance of the 2012 college football season, which kicks off Aug. 30.
The contest began Wednesday and will continue through Aug. 31, which is College Colors Day, an annual celebration where fans are encouraged to wear apparel from their favorite university.
