The “Silent Night” Game At Taylor University Is One Of The Best Traditions In Sports – VIDEO
“This is video of the annual “Silent Night” game at Taylor University.
Taylor University is a private, interdenominational, evangelical Christian college in Upland, Indiana, that participates on the NAIA level.
They have one of the best, and one of the least known traditions in sports with the “Silent Night” game.
The tradition is very simple; once a year, during a game in December, the Taylor Trojans play a home game in which the crowd sits absolutely quiet, dressed in crazy costumes, until the home team score their tenth point. When they do, the crowd goes ballistic.
The game takes place the Friday after the fall semester ends.
Think about that for a second. Here we have a basketball game, with about 2,500 fans dressed in costumes, and they don’t make any noise until their team hit double-digit points.
Just great stuff Taylor!
By the way, Taylor defeated Akron-Wayne, 90-58.
