Top Football Teams Ranked by Academics

It may seem obvious that the schools with the best football teams belong to higher ranking schools, but that’s not always the case. When a school is focused on academics, like ivy league schools, it makes sense that the football team may not be on the Dean’s List. No matter where you team is ranked, find the apparel you want to represent your team with college football clothing at Flying Colors Apparel.

#1 - Stanford Cardinals

It’s no surprise that the ivy league giant is at number one. Just under 17,000 students, the average SAT score is 2210. In 2014, the Cardinals had an 8-5 record, the lowest it’s been since 2009. Their mascot, the Stanford tree, needs some sunshine.  

#2 - Notre Dame Fighting Irish        

With a graduation rate of 90 percent, one of the top private schools in the country, was not at the top of their game. With another disappointing record of 8-5, their mascot, the Leprechaun, didn’t bring them much luck.


#3 - USC Trojans      

The University of Southern California, with a record of 9-4, finished the season ranking at number 20. Being the largest school in California, it ranks highly for acceptance rate and graduation rate, but needed a little help from the Trojan Horse to pull off the fight on the field.

#4 - UCLA Bruins

University of California at Los Angeles has been successful recently, but it took almost two decades to get to this point. They ranked number 10, the highest since 1998. A prestigious public school, they ranked in the top 10 percent for acceptance rate and the average SAT score is 1950.

#5 - Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Buzzing to the top on both fronts in the state of Georgia, Georgia Tech beat out University of Georgia and finished number 7. Georgia Tech also has the highest average SAT score of 2145. They also ranked in the top 10 percent for acceptance rate. However, the 4-year graduation rate is 34 percent.
