Tradition

Before the team enters the field, a portion of Nile Kinnick’s acceptance speech is played. The team will come out with ‘Back in Black’ playing over the speakers and the Swarm begins!
The swarm consists of all the players holding hands and casually jogging onto the field.
‘Enter Sandman’ by Metallica is played as the team runs out.

Here is a video that shows a typical entrance:
