Feature: Top 10 Best College Football Apps

December 24, 2013 - Written By Cory McNutt

This time of year we have the College Football Bowl games, so we ran through a few apps that will help you follow your favorite collegiate football team. Keep up-to-date on all of the games – some offer pregame and postgame shows, breaking news, and notifications. There are a few apps that are nothing but college football, and a couple that will allow you to follow all sports, and we threw in one game type app as well. There are many terrific college apps designed specifically for only one team – for instance, if you followed the Tennessee Volunteers, there are three dozen apps for simply tracking that particular team.
