No one was standing in the way of Clemson's football team this year—or their band. After last night's win in Levi's Stadium, it seemed like it couldn't get any better for Clemson fans. But wait, there's more. The final results for the CFP Battle of the Bands are here and we have our winner: the Clemson University Tiger Band!
College marching bands are a quintessential part of the collegiate athletics experience. And in most cases, they are completely voluntary. Often underappreciated and overshadowed, these college marching bands rehearse weekly to put on multiple performances a week at numerous athletic events—while still preparing one or more half-time shows that are entertaining and memorable.
That's why we want to make a point to recognize all college marching bands out there, especially those that continue to set the standard in performance and entertainment like Clemson University and Alabama's Million Dollar Band.
Now, the results.
