DENTON, Texas (08/30/2012) – This Friday, Aug. 31, North Texas fans across the nation are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing anything green and white for national College Colors Day. And we mean anything including hats, earrings, T-shirts, ties, watches or something that shows support for your beloved Mean Green.
College Colors Day gives you an excuse to throw a preseason tailgate party, have a friendly inter-office competition between rival schools or just a reason to support the team that has brought you excitement over the years. Be sure to check out the new Official Online Store of the Mean Green Athletics for all of your green and white merchandising needs.
