Football is being played in the Power Five conferences, but many of the longstanding traditions that go along with the games are on hold during the pandemic.

Georgia’s white English bulldog Uga and other live animal mascots won’t be in SEC stadiums because of precautions against coronavirus.

The Grove at Mississippi is closed. War Eagle flights are grounded at Auburn.

Fans won’t Gather at the Paw after games at Clemson.

Experts say the traditions create community and give fans an awareness of their shared history and culture.
