There have been 147 College Football Seasons. There were no games played in 1871 so hence there was no football season that year. The game and tradition of College Football quickly took off, by 1879 there were already 20 teams playing with some very familiar teams already participating such as the Michigan Wolverines and the Navy Midshipmen.
