The craziest tradition in college football witnessed this fall had to be the Mirror Lake Jump at Ohio State University.

The tradition has been going on since 1990, where students from all across campus descend upon the on-campus lake just to jump in its freezing water, proving their dedication to tradition. The tradition occurs annually during the week of OSU's biggest game of the year, archrival Michigan.

This tradition has gotten so big it even has its own unofficial, but very real, Twitter account, @mirrorlakejump.
