GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

While the game-winning touchdown of a college football game will get the crowd on their feet and screaming, many pregame traditions and team entrances are as celebrated as a win.

In preparation of the start of the season, Yahoo! released its list of the "Top 25 Team Entrances in College Football" last week.

From teams along the Pacific coast to historic traditions, the rankings highlight some well known and lesser known pregame rituals.

Deemed by the school and many others at the "25 Most Exciting Seconds in College Football," Clemson University was honored with the top position on two of the Yahoo contributors' lists.

The University of South Carolina also made the list at number 14 on one list and 19 on the second. The Gamecocks take the field to the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Some of the traditions even sparked other schools to copy. The University of Miami was reportedly the first school to have their team run onto the field through a cloud of smoke, which started in the 1950s with the use of fire extinguishers.

Other teams with top traditions include Florida State University, University of Colorado, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Auburn University.
