‘The Victors’ named best college football fight song…ever!

Hail to the Victors!

According to Sports Illustrated, “The Victors” has been named the best college football fight song in history!

“The all-time winningest program in college football, Michigan’s ‘The Victors’ perfectly embodies the maize and blue. Written and composed by then-student Louis Elbel in 1898, a shortened variation of the nation’s best fight song is played every time the Wolverines score or make a major defensive play. ‘The Victors’ is so bold and commanding that alumnus and past President Gerald R. Ford often requested the Naval band play the song in place of the customary ‘Hail to the Chief.’ Upon his death, Ford requested it to accompany his funeral procession at the capitol.”

Here is the top 10 list:

1. “The Victors” — Michigan
2. “Boomer Sooner” — Oklahoma
3. “Rocky Top” — Tennessee
4. “Victory March” — Notre Dame
5. “On Wisconsin” — Wisconsin
6. “Fight On” — Southern Cal
7. “Tiger Rag” — Clemson
8. “Anchors Aweigh” — Navy
9. “FSU Fight Song” — Florida State
10. “Bow Down to Washington” – Washington
