Some teams have already completed their spring game, others have not. There are some major quarterback positions still up for grabs.
School legends, such as Andrew Luck, the likely No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft and gunslinger Brandon Weeden have to be replaced.
Quarterback is the most important position on the field, and the victor of each quarterback battle will help shape the 2012 college football season.
Many of these battles will continue into the summer and maybe even into the fall, as picking the right quarterback is vital to any team's success.
Here are four enticing quarterback battles left unresolved.
Who will take over for 28-year-old quarterback Brandon Weeden? Weeden threw for over 9000 yards and 71 touchdowns the past two years, leaving a huge hole for Oklahoma State to fill.
Rising junior Clint Chelf was the only backup to gain experience last season, but he only played in "garbage time" when the games were well-decided.
Could the two four-star quarterbacks, redshirt freshman J.W. Walsh or incoming freshman Wes Lunt compete or even win the quarterback job?
We'll see, as Mike Gundy has not declared a starter yet.
Which school is best prepared to replace their last quarterback?
John Brantley was supposed to take over for Tim Tebow and lead the Florida Gators to SEC Championship games. Brantley didn't pan out and now Florida has a mess of a quarterback situation.
Sophomore quarterbacks Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett both struggled mightily last season while Brantley was hurt.
Each completed less than 50 percent of his passes and combined to throw two touchdowns compared to six interceptions.
Both have ideal size, strength and scrambling ability, but one of the two needs to step up their passing game in order for Florida to return to prominence.
Someone has to replace Andrew Luck.
Stanford's chaotic battle went from five battlers to two, according to ESPN's Kevin Gemmell. Brett Nottingham and Josh Nunes are the two frontrunners for the starting spot.
Now the bigger question is how Stanford will bounce back from losing Luck.
Certainly Luck is not a replaceable player, there's a reason scouts have been raving about this kid for many years. Stanford has to prove that the program is bigger than Luck and continue the same success as they had with him at the helm.

Surprisingly, ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler declared for the NFL draft, leaving the Sun Devils scrambling to find his replacement.
A three-way battle between sophomores Taylor Kelly, Michael Eubank and Michael Bercovici is underway with neither of the three separating themselves from the rest.
Eubank is the popular choice among Sun Devil fans because his pure athleticism and size (6'5", 242 pounds) reminds fans a lot of Cam Newton or Vince Young.
Bercovici is probably the best passer in the group, but his lack of mobility could hurt him in the battle for the starting quarterback position.
Kelly is probably the least likely of the three to win the job based on the fact that the other two quarterbacks are skilled in those critical areas.
ASU is not expected to name a starter for quite some time, and will probably head into summer break without a resolution.
