TALLAHASSEE, FL (#WTXLDigital) - College sports and Star Wars have a few things in common. They both have dedicated fan bases and have teamed up for those who want to show their school pride, as well as the power of the Force.

Star Wars announced on its site that a new collection of apparel and accessories will be released. However, this is not your typical line of Star Wars gear.

Star Wars will meet college sports in this new line that includes more than 50 schools. The site says that the gear will have the school's graphics as well as some iconic designs from the Star Wars series.

You won't have to go too far, far away to get your hands on some of this merchandise. The site says that Florida State University will be one of the schools to be featured. Other Florida schools include the University of Florida and the University of South Florida. 

The gear is already available at Kohls and Old Navy, with campus stores selling the gear for your intergalactic sports showdown sometime this fall.

Star Wars fans are not the only ones who are sporting their favorite series along with their favorite teams. Grumpy cat fans are also getting the benefits of a merchandise collaboration.
