Auburn Tradition | Official Colors

Auburn's official colors are burnt orange and navy blue. Theories abound concerning the origin of Auburn's school colors. One claims "Miss Allie" sewed an orange "A" on a navy blue letterman's sweater and used it to convince coach George Petrie to use the colors of his alma mater (Virginia) for Auburn's first football game against Georgia in 1892.

Another says Petrie was asked by a reporter for the team's colors before the game and he decided there on the spot. No matter how it started, a visit to any Auburn game will feature a sea of orange and blue.
