    I know Maryland has one. I believe its from a war i cant remember which. Its on the The Gossett Football Team House. Its fired after every score.


    EDIT (cdj) -

    Cannon
    During home games, a small cannon is fired off each time the football team scores. - LINK



    From MadScientist06:

    University of Maryland. Still trying to figure out where this little arse cannon is, but here it is.



    On a mission. I will drive to campus tomorrow, during lunch and solve this mystery.

    Touchdown Cannon
    The Goal Line Club sponsors the Touchdown Cannon that is fired at all home games after touchdowns and field goals. We also take the cannon on the road once a year and to our BOWL GAME! - LINK

    At South Carolina, we don't fire any cannons. We have a rooster crow after TDs.

    All they need to do for that one is copy what the Tampa Bay Bucs use. It's the exact same setup if I'm not mistaken.

    Actually it's the same pirate ship. USF and Tampa Bay share Raymond James Stadium.

    From IrishBearcat at Tradition Football:

    Cincinnati Bearcats do this as well after they score a touchdown, cannons are fired.

    "There was plenty of powdery ammunition - large expanses of unused, snow-covered seats in the 35,000-seat stadium. ROTC members built a snowman next to the cannon fired behind the end zone after every Bearcat score." http://www.gobearcats.com/sports/m-f...120410aaa.html

    Ole Miss

    From olemiss86 at Operation Sports:



    From alterego2 via e-mail:

    Here is a backstory about Miss Mary, the Ole Miss cannon. It is named in honor of Mary Wendell, the girlfriend of Jeremiah Gage, an Old Miss student in 1860 who left with his classmates to defend the South. All but about two of them were killed in the war; none returned to graduate. Gage was killed at Gettysburg, and many of his classmates were killed there in Pickett's charge. There are two monuments there on the field to the University Greys. Kappa Alpha manages the Ole Miss cannon and used to have a horse and rider come on the field.

    This is definitely proving to be a bit more difficult than locating band sections in the stadiums from earlier this year. I feel as though this is partially due to the fact that--while most colleges have bands--not all colleges are going to have a cannon. Unless we have somebody who knows with any certainty that a cannon is or is not used by a school, it will be difficult to say anything for sure until we find some direct measure of proof.

    Good work so far though!

    No cannons; RUF/NEKS fire guns after each score.

    From ruMorss at the EA Forums:
    Oklahoma Shoots off a gun like this after every touchdown.. Oh and after every field goal... Its located under the field goal post on the endzone away from the Big Scoreboard/ on the endzone with the little screen... They shoot 2 of them off at the same time...

    Yeah... I think it pretty much becomes that until we find definitive proof that they have one, then the assumption is that they don't.

    I've been trying to check out official college athletics sites and Wikipedia listings for football teams and stadiums to find any mention of cannons. Most of the college athletics sites have a "Traditions" page--which, for me, would be the logical place to mention a cannon used on game day--but I haven't been getting many hits on cannons aside from the Texas one I found earlier.

    In earlier years, The Brothers of Kappa Sigma at WKU lead the tradition of blasting a Cannon at the start and finish of every WKU football game, as well as whenever the Toppers scored. They were known as the Cannon Crew. The tradition was halted in the 90's but the cannon still exists. - LINK
