Few sports fans are as loyal and passionate as those in college football. With the dedication to their teams and the passion seen 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 battle flags that could represent the 14 SEC universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.

Right off the bat, it's hard not to notice the retention of the Alabama state flag's crimson cross of St. Andrew, with the classic houndstooth pattern filled in on either side of it as a tribute to legendary Tide head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tide are still set to return to action Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the USC Trojans at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Even with a couple months to go until this meeting, Alabama has already opened as an early 14.5-point favorite over the Trojans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
