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 battle flags that could represent the 14 Big Ten universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.

Most Penn State fans should recognize Pennsylvania's iconic keystone symbol found dead center here. From interstate signs to state IDs and even license plates, you'll find the keystone plastered all across PA. And considering you'll find Happy Valley roughly dead center of the state on a map in Centre County, Pennsylvania, placing it in in the middle of this flag design plays well.

This concept also does a great job of capturing the Nittany Lions' rich history of simplistic, and team-oriented color schemes, featuring the same white helmets without a Penn State logo, as well as no last names on the back of their jerseys.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nittany Lions are still set to return to battle Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Kent State Golden Flashes at home in University Park, Pennsylvania.
