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 SEC universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.

The full checkerboard design is an iconic pattern with a rich history of tradition for the University of Tennessee's football program and, perhaps, the most recognizable feature of Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

While some Kentucky fans may disagree, when fans see the checkerboard pattern in college football, they're most likely to think of Neyland Stadium's iconic end zone designs or fan-organized seating sections in the stands.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vols are still set to return to action Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Charlotte 49ers at home in Knoxville, Tennessee.
