STUDENT SECTION OF THE YEAR SEMI-FINALISTS

In Alphabetical Order
Georgia
Iowa
Penn State
Utah

The Buckeyes have a large backing as it is, but the student section in the Horseshoe is relentless in its support. Affectionately known as the Block O, the organizing group for the student section was founded in 1938 and has the OH—IO chant as well as pulling off card stunts on its resume. This group is rowdy and loud, helping to make Ohio Stadium a very difficult place to play.

UCF

University of Central Florida

Rain or shine is never certain in Florida but the one thing that is unquestionable is the UCF student section. A three-hour weather delay this past Thursday did not halt the UCF student section from being loud and rowdy, making the “The Bounce House” bounce for all four quarters. With unmatched energy, the UCF student section showed up, giving the Knights endurance to come back after a first half deficit to secure a victory.

ARK

University of Arkansas

Razorback Stadium was absolutely rocking this weekend and at the center of it all was The Trough, the Arkansas Razorbacks student section. The Trough faithful showed up in droves to help support their team defeat Texas in a wild upset, screaming “Woo Pig” throughout the night and storming the field after the final whistle. The thrilling energy from the student section had the city of Fayetteville celebrating all night, earning them Live Más Student Section of the Week.

PSU

Penn State

Of all the great traditions in college football, a Penn State “White Out” game is one of the best. And this past weekend, the Penn State student section did not disappoint as they once again showed why they were named the 2019 Live Más Student Section of the Year. What other student section camps out days before the game, is up early for College Gameday and still has the energy and endurance to make so much noise all game long that even the officials were making mistakes? Nittanyville brought so much #StudentSectionSauce that they easily earned the honor of Live Más Student Section of the Week.

NCSU

NC State

The NC State Wolfpack students were howling after the double overtime win against Clemson. Clemson’s choice to head towards the end zone away from the student section in overtime was the telling factor that the noise from the students was influential in the play of the game. All game long the howls did not stop from the Wolfpack-faithful, but the uproar only grew louder when Clemson failed to convert their last fourth down and the students stormed the field at Carter—Finley Stadium to celebrate the huge upset earning them this week’s Live Más Student Section of the Week.

UKY

Kentucky

Kroger field was absolutely electric when the Kentucky Wildcats upset UF at home for the first time since 1986. The #StudentSectionSauce was so forceful that the UF offensive line couldn’t handle the atmosphere that helped cause 7 false starts. The noise from the Kentucky students impacted the victory crowning the Wildcats the Live Más Student Section of the Week.

IOWA

University of Iowa

The Iowa Hawks Nest student section is positioned next to the marching band creating a deafening atmosphere at Kinnick Stadium, making success for the opposing team extremely difficult. With a huge victory for the Hawkeyes against Penn State, Iowa showed that their #StudentSectionSauceimpacted not only the outcome of the game but the children at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital as the stadium participated in the Iowa Wave tradition after the first quarter. Tradition and impact are two things that make an outstanding student sectionand the Iowa Hawks Nest is awarded this week’s Live Más Student Section of the Week.

UTAH

University of Utah

An emotional night for the Utah Utes against Arizona State shows the real impact that students and players have on the game of football. The Utes had a sluggish first half but that did not halt the energy that came from the MUSS, sustaining the noise through all four quarters lending a hand to help the Utes to a mighty comeback win. Endurance, an integral component of the #StudentSectionSauce never died out from the Mighty Utah Student Section making this this week’s Live Más Student Section of the Week.

ISU

Iowa State

Cyclone Nation, Iowa State’s student section, is constantly filled with students who know how to keep the noise loud all game long. This student section is known for “running the steps” of Jack Trice Stadium to get the best seats early as who would want to miss a comeback win against the undefeated Oklahoma State. The sweet victory sounded even sweeter when the students were belting out Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”. With the hot #StudentSectionSauce from the Cyclone Nation, the Iowa State students are being named this week’s Taco Bell Live Más Student Section of the Week.

AU

Auburn

One of the loudest stadiums in college football, known as Jordan-Hare Stadium, was hot with #StudentSectionSauce this weekend in order to knock off a top 10 school. The excitement from the Auburn Jungle student section had the atmosphere electric with chants of “War Eagle” that were thunderous. The heat from the student section resulted in the Auburn defense only allowing 3 points on the board in the second half and this impact crowns Auburn the Taco Bell Live Más Student Section of the Week.

A&M

Texas A&M University

There’s nothing quite like the “the 12th Man” at Texas A&M and those students showed up this weekend vs. Auburn helping lead their team to a victory: the school’s second against an Alabama opponent this season on their own turf. The visitors couldn’t get anything going on offense all game due to the energy and endurance from the students. The Aggie faithful were on fire with their impact on the game which is why they are being named this week’s Live Más Student Section of the Week and bumping them up to #1 in their quest to regain the title of the Live Más Student Section of the Year!

BU

Baylor

McLane Stadium had an atmosphere that was alive as the Baylor Bears defeated the Oklahoma Sooners at home. The Baylor students have brought their #StudentSectionSauce all season long which has played a strong impact on the Bears not losing a single home game on their own turf this year. With excitement roaring in Waco, Texas, the students rushed the field a few seconds too early but their victory over undefeated Oklahoma crowns them this week’s Taco Bell Live Más Student Section of the Week.

OSU

Ohio State

When you think of the Block O at Ohio State, a few words come to mind: Rowdy, loud and impactful. The Buckeye students brought energy and #StudentSectionSauce from start to finish in a pivotal game vs. the Spartans and stayed all game long despite a blowout from the beginning. With OH—IO echoing in the Horseshoe all game, the support from Block O is relentless. While they’re taking their road on the show next week for The Game, Block O showed up and showed off their school spirit and that’s why our committee is awarding Ohio State this week’s Taco Bell Live Más Student Section of the Week.

UMich

University of Michigan

The atmosphere at the Big House was unlike anything else for The Game. The maize and blue students packed the largest stadium in the United States and were bringing the noise the entire game. The rowdy environment caused the Buckeyes ten penalties. The students causing havoc on their rival all game led to the Wolverines’ first victory vs. Ohio State since 2011 and that’s why they’re crowned the Taco Bell Live Más Student Section of the Week.

WATCHLIST

Each week, we will release a list of college football student sections to keep an eye on. We explain why they have a chance to be the Live Más Student Section of the Week.

VIEW
Michigan

The Michigan student section can always be heard singing “The Victors” or going crazy to “Seven Nation Army”. As is to be expected in a 107,000+ capacity stadium, when Michigan students start the wave, alternating its speed and direction, it’s just a little bit bigger than any other wave you’ve ever seen.

Mississippi State

Clanga! Your ears will be ringing long after the game is over given the way Bulldog fans have taken to ringing their cowbells inside Davis—Wade Stadium. While the SEC has attempted to mitigate the noise generating devices, they have endured as the signature for the maroon and white.

Nebraska

The Cornhuskers’ student section is nuts. The Iron N is the official student section for Nebraska and has gone as far as hand painting 50x60 foot banners to display at home games to try to intimidate the opposing team. You can also be sure to see plenty of Halloween costumes in the stands of the student section along with a tremendous amount of standing and cheering throughout the game.

NC State

Ask any player in the ACC about the toughest places to play, and you’ll almost certainly hear NC State at or near the top of the list. One of the big reasons is the design of Carter—Finley Stadium, which features some of the most cramped sidelines in college football. Then add a raucous student section, and you get a recipe for a big—game atmosphere and a long history of some unlikely upsets.

Georgia Tech

There’s perhaps not a more beautiful setting in the ACC than a night game at Bobby Dodd Stadium, a historic venue with the lights of modern Atlanta illuminating the background. But it’s not just the picturesque nature of the stadium that makes a Georgia Tech game special. The student section is a riotous affair, with yellow—clad fans donning wigs and face paint and rocking the end zone during every big play.

Baylor

There is a unique tradition in the Baylor Line: a group of first—year Baylor students who wear yellow jerseys with their name and graduation year on the back. The students run onto the field pregame to form a human tunnel for the team to run through as it enters the stadium, then they sprint back to the student section for the game.

App State

They call it The Rock, and Kidd—Brewer Stadium has earned the nickname. The students at App State know how to create an intimidating atmosphere, making every trip into the mountains of Boone, N.C. a merciless affair for the opposition.

Michigan State

There is no lack of enthusiasm from this student section. With 13,000 strong dressed in green, you’ll here chants of “Go State!“ or more prominently “Go Green!“ while the opposite side of the stadium responds “Go White!” Watch these students go crazy when their team takes the field to “Thunderstruck.”

Oregon

Autzen Stadium has developed a reputation for being one of the loudest venues in college football, and that’s largely due to the Pit Crew. At the end of every third quarter, the student section gets amped for the fourth by singing and dancing to the song Shout!. It’s a fitting tribute to the famous scene in cult classic Animal House, which was filmed on campus at Oregon before its release in 1978.
