The Most Influential Colleges in Football Today

The Most Influential Colleges in Football Today

Find the colleges and universities that have the biggest impact in football based on the influence of their alumni in football. See which schools have proven histories of attracting and cultivating some of the most influential athletes today.

College football is massively popular on a regional scale. Our research finds that among all college athletics, the football field is home to the largest number of highly influential programs. In simpler terms, if you want to go to a college or university with a great football program, you have a lot of schools to choose from. The most noteworthy university football programs cast an enormous influence over their surrounding regions. Not only that, but when it comes to college football, there is a huge amount of influence to go around. The list of best 50 football colleges and universities is topped by major programs such as the University of Michigan, Ohio State, and the University of Florida. However, schools ranking in the thirties like Clemson, Baylor, and Texas A&M also score as highly influential in their own regions. Top football programs generally boast a history of top players. For instance, Michigan enjoys its top spot thanks to former NFL quarterback and current head coach Jim Harbaugh, NFL Hall of Famer Charles Woodson (who remains the only defensive back in history to win college’s coveted Heisman Trophy), and of course, 7-time Super Bowl winning quarterback and consensus G.O.A.T., Tom Brady.
