Schools and conferences across college football paused Saturday to mark Veterans Day. 

The Atlantic Coast Conference featured Syracuse coach Dino Babers, who grew up on a military base, and several others from league teams in a video saluting the military. Several league schools also showed tributes during their games.


During a break in the second quarter at Georgia Tech, the school showed a video of Clint Castleberry, who was killed in action during World War II.  Castleberry starred at Georgia Tech as a freshman running back in 1942, finishing third in the Heisman  Trophy balloting. It was his only season. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps and was killed in a plane crash in 1944. 

The video noted that Castleberry's No. 19 is the only football jersey Georgia Tech has ever retired.

Also at Bobby Dodd Stadium, the 20 yard-lines were painted red, white and blue to honor veterans.


Like the ACC, the SEC shared a video that featured a mix of conference alums in the military who are stationed around the world showing love for their alma maters, as well as tributes from players and coaches in the conference for their service.


At Vanderbilt, the Commodores teamed with the organization Medals of Honor for their game against Kentucky. Instead of the players' last names, the back of their jerseys bore the names of military members who were killed in the line of duty.

Even coach Derek Mason took part in the trbute, wearing the name of  USMC Sgt. Kevin Balduf on his shirt, along with a United States Marine Corps patch. Balduf was a lifelong Commodores fan killed in Afghanistan during his third deployment.
