One of the best parts about college football is the variety. You've got a veritable buffet of options on how you liked your pigskin served to you on Saturdays.

Oregon dresses—and moves—like a radioactive comic book character most weeks and is celebrated for it. Alabama hits hard in helmets with numbers on the side. USC has enough swagger to make up for the country's second-largest city not having an NFL franchise. Boise makes an entire state relevant sports-wise with their blue turf, trick plays and Oklahoma-beating bowl wins.
