Few sports fans are as loyal and passionate as those in college football. With the dedication to their teams and the passion in heated rivalries, there's a reason fan bases are often referred to as "nations."

With that kind of pride rampant throughout the most competitive college football programs, sometimes it feels like a flag is the only thing missing from these being real nations.

That being said, Reddit user u/toms47 made this leap by designing college football flags that could represent the 10 Big XII universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective history.

You have to love the respect paid to the "Lone Star State" front and center from the state's seal with the burnt orange fill and sharp white outline. The horizontal stripes in the background make for a wonderfully appealing blend, and all 40 of those stripes are meant to represent Texas' old "The 40 acres" nickname, which was the original size of the university when it was founded.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Longhorns are still set to return to battle Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the South Florida (USF) Bulls at home in Austin.
