Table of hex colors for NCAA teams?


Question

Greetings designers.

I've done enough googling to know that there are other people looking for this color table, but I can't find it for the life of me. I'm close to trying to write a script to scrape this off wikipedia but thought I'd ask here first.

Has anyone found a table of NCAA Division 1 school colors?

Ideal format has columns for primary and secondary colors with hex codes. I apologize if this isn't an appropriate forum for this question, please let me know.

Accepted Answer

Sorry for letting this question get stale. I'm primarily a Stack Overflow user, and was advised to post this question here.

I ended up writing a ruby script to search Wikipedia by school and team name, look for the school colors span tags and pull the background color values. Results were surprisingly good. I got about 80% of the division 1 teams primary and secondary colors on the first pass through and then did some spot checking and clean up. I'll get around to posting this somewhere, if anyone else stumbles on this and is in need you can message me for the data.

Here's the google doc with the rough pull. If you use this and do any cleanup, I'd appreciated you passing on the fixes :)
