In their home opener against Oklahoma, Tennessee fans did their classic “Checkerboard” pattern in the stands by certain sections wearing orange and others wearing white. Another SEC team is looking to do the same thing this week as they welcome in a non-conference opponent of their own.
According to MU Tigers, the Missouri football team has asked fans to help “tiger stripe” Memorial Stadium for Saturday’s match-up against Connecticut.
They released a map of what sections are supposed to wear black and what sections should wear yellow, the team’s colors.
The map of the stadium seating looks pretty cool and I’m sure it would look even better in person or on television. Fans have done things like this in the past and it’s a great way to really get fans involved in the game aside from just cheering.
Forget whiteouts and blackouts. “Tiger striping” and “checkerboarding” are the new things to do in stadiums this season.
I’m sure this will look pretty intimidating.
