The NCAA 2012 Traditions Contest is nearing its end with the Championship to be announced Tuesday night by ESPN Sportsnation and EA Sports.

The FSU fanbase has kept Chief Oseola and Renegade in the spotlight with nearly 1.5 million votes during this contest of a 16-team tournament format.

In round 1, the Noles defeated the Florida Gators pre-game ritual. In round 2, the Noles defeated the pre-game ritual of the LSU Tigers. The Semifinals saw FSU get the great Notre Dame fanbase. So far in the Championship finals, the Noles have a commanding lead on the Michigan Wolverines.

With voting wrapping up Tuesday afternoon, a winner will be announced on the same day the NCAA 2012 video game will be released. If Seminole Nation holds true to form, the Noles will wind up being the champion school of EA Sports Inaugural Traditions Tournament.

    FSU won the prettiest helmet contest, now they win best tradition. Too bad they can't win any championships where they count- on the field.

    What a stupid contest. ESPN doesn't have anything else to talk about and local news talks as if a championship has been won. This is so lame.

      "NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF DRUNKEN NON DRIVING KIDS" who spend their money here on food, drinks, rent, utilities, clothes, transportation, and many other things. How many local businesses are dependent on these college students for their livelihoods?
