MIAMI (WAFF) -

Kick off to the BCS Championship game is hours away, but many fans have already started their pregame rituals.

Fans are gearing up for the big game with tailgating and time honored rituals.

Whether it's a lucky t-shirt or watching the game in a special seat, some fans' passion for the game spills out in bizarre rituals.

One Notre Dame fan said he won't shave his beard. Another fan holds on to a jersey that his father bought him when he was a kid. He said when it's not with him, the team loses.

Fans on both side are wiling away the hours until the game with tailgating, and fans are going all out.

While Alabama fans are outnumbered at the game, they still put on a good tailgate with Southern fried food and entertainment.

One group, called the Houndstooth Hunks and Honeys, said they never miss a game and don't mind being outnumbered because Bama fans tailgate best.

Many fans showed up to the tailgate prepared – with massive RV's fully decked out.

The RV lot was packed and spots to park were running upwards of $150.

The game starts are 7 p.m. on ESPN.
