ESPN ranks Howard's Rock #1 ACC tradition

Clemson's iconic 'Howard's Rock' is ranked #1 in ESPN's ranking of the top ACC traditions for 2016.

"They call it the most exciting 25 seconds in college football for a reason -- it’s that cool," ESPN said.

"Clemson players and coaches touch Howard’s Rock before every game and run down the hill into Memorial Stadium, with balloons being released into the sky as the school’s fight song plays. Night games in Death Valley make the tradition all the more entertaining. We’d be remiss, though, to not also give a mention to Virginia Tech, as the Hokies’ “Enter Sandman” entrance is pretty special too."

The other top traditions in the Power Five conferences include Ohio State’s marching band "dotting the I" (Big 10), Kansas State's Wabash Cannonball (Big 12), Colorado's Ralphie's run (Pac-12) and Auburn's War Eagle (SEC).
