In the US and Canada, college football is known as National Collegiate Athletic Association Football, or more commonly NCAA football or NCAAF. Betting on college football is extremely popular, due to the fast-paced and high-scoring nature of most games.
There are several different levels of college football, but sports bettors primarily focus on Division I, which splits 130 schools into 10 different conferences. The top five conferences are referred to as the “Power Five,” while the others are called the “Group of Five.”
A college football team will typically play 12 to 14 regular season games each year, with a majority of those coming against teams that are in the same conference.
The top four NCAAF teams across all 10 conferences also qualify for the College Football Playoffs. The winner of both semi-finals play in the College Football Playoff National Championship, which determines the overall NCAA football champion for that year. Naturally, this is by far the most wagered on game in NCAAF betting.
