College football is riddled with as many different philosophies about uniforms and how a team should look as there are teams spread out within the territorial borders of the United States.

Whether your favorite team is a perennial Power Five contender, a Group of Five hopeful, an FCS stalwart, a historic black college or university, or one of the lower-division programs that fall under the NCAA umbrella or the auspices of other governing bodies at the sport’s various tiers of operation, you have an opinion about what both your team wears and what your opponents wear.
