College football brings generations together unlike any other American sport. Current students and alumni bond over their school’s football teams every Saturday throughout the fall, and the 2019 season is sure to be intense with so many contenders.
Division I NCAA football is split up into a series of conference, with five of the nation’s top conference being known collectively as the Power 5, which includes the Southeastern Conference (SEC), Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).
The ACC is home to last year’s College Football Playoff champion, the Clemson Tigers. Dabo Swinney’s Clemson team took home the title behind quarterback Deshaun Watson and a late rally to upset defending national champion Alabama in the title game. The Alabama Crimson Tide, with head coach Nick Saban and sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts, are in great shape to compete for the title once again this season in a weak SEC.
Some of the nation’s top coaches and rivalries lie in the Big Ten conference, including Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh. Ohio State and Michigan are expected to be among the nation’s top ten teams all season long, and the Buckeyes just slid past the Wolverines in last year’s battle. The Big Ten West division is no slouch either, featuring the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Wisconsin Badgers, both of which look to qualify for the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis this season.
If you’re looking for offense, look no further than the Big 12 conference, which features several of the nation’s top Air Raid offenses, including the Oklahoma Sooners and quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield looks to contend for the Heisman Trophy again in 2017. The Texas Longhorns are also expected to improve this season after not being in a championship game since the BCS championship in 2009.
Heading out west, the Pac-12 has arguably the nation’s most exciting player, University of Southern California (USC) QB Sam Darnold, who fans and analysts thinks will help the Trojans return to greatness not seen since Matt Leinart was taking snaps in Los Angeles. The Oregon Ducks are always a good bet to be a strong team out west, as well.
Whatever you choose, the tradition, pageantry and excitement in college football is unmatched, and you absolutely can’t go wrong with any team, conference or game
