College Football

The early days of college football on college campuses didn’t look much like the modern football games that Americans watch today. The games were unregulated and brutal. Although the Nov. 6, 1869 game between Rutgers University and College of New Jersey (Princeton University) is largely viewed as the first college football in American history, the game used modified London Football Association Rules. The first game that looks like today’s football games wasn’t played until years later. Popular rivalries such as Harvard and Yale, and Alabama and Auburn formed shortly thereafter.

In 2016 Sports Illustrated published findings from ESPN that found college football games airing on nationally-rated networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, ESPN, EPN2, ESPNU and FS1) averaged about 2 million viewers per game. There are hundreds of college football teams in America, with the Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) consisting of more than 100 of them. FBS features the most competitive teams in college football, including “Power Five” conferences Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big 12 Conference, Big 10 Conference, Southeastern Conference and Pacific-12 Conference.
