Things are getting heated between the fans of two of college football’s storied programs ahead of their meeting in the season opener for both teams on Sept. 3.
First, the USC bookstore recently began selling T-shirts that read “Roll Tears Roll” mocking the Alabama slogan of Roll Tide Roll.
Now some Alabama fans have taken things to another level and maybe a step too far depending on your tastes. They created a T-shirt referencing USC’s former Heisman Trophy winning running back O.J. Simpson and the murders he was accused of committing in the 1990s.
Ooof. First there was "Roll Tears Roll" from USC. Now this. Doubt you can buy these at the SUPe Store, though. pic.twitter.com/NWTURmJtZV

The teams will face each other on neutral ground in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Alabama will go into the game ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ poll and USC is ranked No. 17.
