The University of Tennessee’s “Rocky Top” has been named the number one college football fight song by the USA Today’s College Football Fan Index.
The Osborne Brothers’ song, however, is not the official fight song of Tennessee.
During halftime of the 1972 Tennessee-Alabama game, fans went hysterical over the tune and, to this day, it’s practically impossible to disassociate it from any U.T. sport.
It even became the official state song of Tennessee in 1982.
