My Favorite College Football Programs

For many football players, Saturdays in Autumn bring the best college experiences. As a player, nothing beats the fun of reliving your team’s glorious moments or the camaraderie of making your way to the stadium with thousands of fans cheering your team. While this has very little bearing on education, it has a huge influence on the life of a college student.  That’s why I've compiled a list of my favorite college football programs:

Texas Longhorns
Representing the University of Texas in Austin, the Texas Longhorns are part of the Big 12 conference. The Longhorns held their first season in 1893, and they have a record of 108 winning seasons from a total of 122. The team is known for producing stars like Ricky William and Earl Campbell, both Heisman winners.

The school boasts of iconic uniform with their burnt orange and white official colors. They host their home games at the Darell K. Memorial Stadium, sitting over 100,000 fans. That means it’s one of the rowdiest and unfriendly atmospheres for visiting teams. Tensions can also run high especially when playing their arch-rivals the Texas A&M Aggies.

Texas A&M Aggies
The Texas A&M University houses the Fightin' Texas Aggies. The team is part of the SEC conference, holding three national titles and 18 conference titles. It’s the college football team of Johnny Manziel and David Crow, both Heisman winners. 

Historically, home games are huge events and are highly anticipated at Texas A&M. The home games are held at Kyle Field, one of the biggest college stadiums in the country. The stadium can sit around 102,000 people, though it’s known to sit close to 110,000 fans when playing rivals like the Texas Longhorns or the LSU Tigers.

Michigan Wolverines
The University of Michigan is the home to the Michigan Wolverines. Located in Ann Arbor, it’s part of the Big Ten conference, and it is known for having the most all-time wins with a record of 929-331-36. The team has also produced three Heisman winners like Charles Woodson and Tom Harmon. 

The Wolverines enjoy their home games at the Michigan Stadium, currently sitting over 107,000 fans. Their stadium is known to have an enthusiastic and ferocious atmosphere during games just like Betway’s user interface. It’s also known to stretch to accommodate 115,000 fans while facing rivals like the Notre Dame Fighting Irish or Ohio State Buckeyes.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Fighting Irish from the University of Notre Dame is probably the most popular college football program in the country. Located in Indiana, the Fighting Irish is known for its long victorious history dating back to its first season in 1887. 

With 13 national championship titles, the team has produced over 480 NFL players. The Fighting Irish also boasts of producing seven Heisman winners like Tim Brown and John Huarte. Their home games are live at the Notre Dame Stadium with a seating capacity of around 80,000 fans. The atmosphere is enthusiastic and light-hearted, but downright intimidating for rivals such as the Michigan State Spartans or the USC Trojans.
