About the Tobacco Road jersey: The most significant road in college basketball, Tobacco Road, is a 10 mile stretch that connects the most heated rivalry together. Split down the middle, the diagonal slash that is stretched across the chest of the jersey is filled in with the two school’s signature blue shades. The Route 15 sign, the highway that Tobacco Road is named from, is stitched at the base of the slash. On the back, the “11” represents the combined number of championship titles that the two schools share.
