The last home game in college sports always carries a special kind of nostalgia for the season's conclusion. It's the last time players and coaches wake up in their own beds for their own game day routines, and it's the final stand for players who won't ever again suit up in a team's colors. It's the last ride, which itself can provoke a range of deep-rooted emotions.
