Chandler Champion was named Miss Alabama 2013 earlier this summer, and she plans to put her state pride on full display the night before she competes in the Miss America pageant on Sept. 15. Champion may not date the starting quarterback of the Alabama football team like a certain former Miss Alabama, but it appears she loves the Crimson Tide just as much.
During the “Show Us Your Shoes” event at Atlantic City on Sept. 14, Champion will be strutting her stuff in a Roll Tide-themed dress. She will also ride on a float that spells out “Roll Tide” on the front and has an Alabama National Championship emblem on the back. Here she is modeling the dress:

Miss Alabama director Nan Teninbaum said the dress made sense given the fact that Champion is an Alabama student and the team has been so successful in recent years.
“With Chandler being a University of Alabama student and the university being the national champs for three years, we chose to do national champs,” Teninbaum told AL.com.
Now that’s how you show off your school pride. The infamous Harvey Updyke could learn a thing or two from the lovely Miss Champion.
