College Football in the US

More than 900 universities in the US offer scholarships for American Football players that would like to play college football and earn a university degree. College football is the best way to become a better football player, develop yourself physically and mentally, to grow an international network of friends and to develop yourself to your full potential. In addition, you will earn a respected university degree that will serve as the foundation for a successful career.

For many players, college football is the perfect way to become a professional player in the NFL.

How does college football work?

College football is much different from “regular” football, which obviously is a huge sport in the USA. The differences between college football and NFL football are very large.

On average, a college football team consists of approximately 100 players. In addition, there is a coaching staff with 10-20 coaches, physical therapists and more, all working on one job: improving the team. Teams compete against other universities in conferences. The ultimate goal? Winning the conference! Winning the conference means your team qualifies for the national NCAA championships, where the best teams in the US compete for the national title.

A typical game day in college football is a huge party for students. Aside from the game itself, many activities are hosted in all kinds of forms, and loads of fans and families show up at the stadiums to cheer on their favorite teams. A game is played in 4 different “quarters”. The rules are similar to the rules in the NFL.

Academic requirements

To play college football you have to graduate from high school. Depending on your country and your academic background, we can select a university and a college football pathway that fits your academic standard.

American universities offer a wide range of courses catered towards different education levels. So, as long as you meet the requirements, we will be able to help you find a university that matches your level and your area of interest. Are you not sure whether you meet the requirements? Feel free to contact us.


Studying at an American university can cost up to $75,000 per year. However, almost all universities with a football team offer athletic (and academic) scholarships to cover these costs.

Slamstox helps you find scholarships so that your college football experience will be financially affordable. Some Slamstox players receive full scholarships, which means they do not have to pay anything for four years of college football and studies. Others receive partial scholarships that cover part of the total cost of attendance. Your scholarship depends on your athletic level, academic level, wishes and ambitions.
