College football generally refers to Division I football, the highest level of intercollegiate football sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
Currently, a total of 346 institutions, all across the US, compete in Division I.
Back in 1978, Division I was subdivided into Division I-A (the principal football schools) and Division I-AA. In 2006, these were renamed to "Football Bowl Subdivision" and "Football Championship Subdivision", respectively.
Football Bowl Subdivision teams compete in post-season bowl games, with the champions of six conferences receiving automatic bids to the Bowl Championship Series to determine a national champion.
Meanwhile, the Football Championship Subdivision, determines its national champion through a 20-team, single-elimination tournament. The champions of 10 conferences receive automatic bids, with 10 "at-large" spots.
With so many competing teams and so many games to wager on, betting on college football can be quite overwhelming. So here are some college football betting tips to help you handicap your college football picks.
