  1. Next we head up to the North Country for the Northern New York Bucks. The Bucks play their home games in Watertown, New York, but also play one of the service schools annually on nearby Fort Drum. They do pretty well recruiting Canadian players due to their location close to Ontario and Quebec. Northern New York University Location: Watertown, New York Type: Public University Founded: 1890 Major Rivals: Central New York, Syracuse
  2. Up next we head to Norfolk, Virginia home to the world's largest naval base, which is the inspiration for the team's name, the Captains. The Captains were a powerhouse throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and are on their way back up finishing the 2018 season ranked number 3 behind the National Champion LA State Breakers and Runner-Up Kansas City Yellow Jackets. They have a major rivalry with the University of Dover that is well attended by members of the Navy and Air Force. University of Norfolk Location: Norfolk, Virginia Type: Private University Founded: 1906 Major Rivals: Dover, Raleigh National Championship Runner-Up: 1 1967
  3. Next we head to Manhattan for the Manhattan State Titans. Though they haven't done much in the playoffs, the Titans are notorious for their bitter rivalries with the Bronx and non-conference Bayamon, which have been known to include all-out brawls. Manhattan State University Location: Manhattan, New York Type: Public University Founded: 1892 Major Rivals: Bronx, Bayamon
  4. Up next we head to the District of Columbia for the D.C. Tech Americans. A newer school, the Americans haven't had the same success some of the older programs have had, but still field an exciting team every year. Though they haven't accomplished anything in the playoffs, D.C. tech has a habit of upsetting highly ranked teams who were expecting an easy win, and have the interesting distinction of being undefeated against #1 ranked schools winning games in 1977, 1982, 1983, 1991, 1999, 2012, 2013, and 2017. They wear uniforms inspired by Evel Knievel due to their nickname of the "Daredevils" for how often they run trick plays and wild offensive formations. Technical University of the District of Columbia Location: Washington, DC Type: Public University Founded: 1961 Major Rivals: Philadelphia State, Baltimore State
  5. Next we head to Connecticut for the Connecticut State Destroyers. Up until 1999 they were known as the Mohegans, before a student vote was taken for a new moniker. The Destroyers beat out the Royals (from New London), Cutters (Coast Guard), Eagles (Famous Coast Guard ship), and Warriors by a large margin. Connecticut State University Location: New London, Connecticut Type: Public University Founded: 1914 Major Rivals: Stamford, UConn
  6. Up next are the Central New York Bengals. The Bengals had a very bland script logo and an overly realistic tiger head logo for several years along with 1980s Cincinnati Bengals knockoff uniforms until the school rebranded in 2008. Central New York University Location: Cortland, New York Type: Public University Founded: 1933 Major Rivals: Northern New York, Utica State
  7. Up next we head out to the East Coast Conference. Our first school of the ECC is the Bronx University Bruins. For years, they have had a heated rivalry with the Manhattan State Titans resulting in some of the greatest college football games of all time including the 1972 National Championship semifinal where the 10-1 Bruins got revenge on the undefeated and top ranked Titans to earn a National Championship final berth. Bronx University Location: Bronx, New York Type: Private University Founded: 1890 Major Rivals: Manhattan State, Utica State National Championship Runner-Up: 1 1972
  8. To finish off the Gulf Coast Conference, we head down to Shreveport. The Shreveport Loggers have had a solid football program since the university was founded in 1938, but have never made it to the National Championship Finals losing in the semifinals a record 7 times. Their main rival is the Baton Rouge Reds, and being a Baptist school against a Catholic one, it is known as the Bayou Bible Bowl. Shreveport University Location: Shreveport, Louisiana Type: Private University Founded: 1938 Religious Affiliation: Baptist Major Rivals: Baton Rouge, Mississippi State
  9. The University of San Antonio has had a checkered history in Super Series football. In the 1970s, the University had been complicit in covering up a cheating ring involving several student athletes, had engaged in illegal recruiting, and was involved in a scheme where student athletes were being essentially paid to play. When the NCAA discovered this, they gave the program a 3-year "death penalty" in 1977. During this time, all players were given a full release allowing them to transfer. The Sentinels were unable to field a team again until 1983. University of San Antonio Location: San Antonio, Texas Type: Private University Founded: 1913 Major Rivals: Central Texas, UT-Fort Worth
  10. Up next we have the Mobile State Minotaurs. The university was founded in 1941, but has only fielded a football team since 1990. They were one of few schools to begin play in the Super Series (Division I at the time) without starting in a lower division. They have always been known as a pass heavy offense owning most of the offensive records in that category, but due to habitually mediocre defense, the Minotaurs have never made it beyond the first round of the playoffs. Mobile State University Location: Mobile, Alabama Type: Public University Founded: 1941 Major Rivals: Alabama Tech, Central Alabama
  11. I'm glad somebody picked up on that! The last of our HBCUs, the Mississippi Christian Falcons have a rich history of both success on the gridiron, and producing strong leaders in the classroom. The Falcons won 2 national championships in the 1990s before the team was suspended from play in 1997 due to issues with hazing and recruiting. They have since returned to the straight and narrow, but haven't regained that level of success. Mississippi Christian University Location: Meridian, Mississippi Type: Private University Founded: 1918 Religious Affiliation: Evangelical Protestant Major Rivals: Hialeah State, Alabama Christian National Championships: 2 1992, 1995 National Championship Runner-Up: 2 1980, 1996
  12. Up next are the Knoxville Knights. The University of Knoxville has an interesting history as it was once part of the University of Tennessee, but split in 1861 due to differences of opinion during the Civil War to become a Private University. Because of this split, Vols fans have always had a deep hatred of Knights fans referring to them as traitors. It is still a heated rivalry despite Knoxville moving up to the Super Series. University of Knoxville Location: Knoxville, Tennessee Type: Private University Founded: 1861 Major Rivals: Nashville, Tennessee
  13. That's kind of what I figured. That's how it goes in the real word. I guess UPU would be like an Alabama. Anyways, back to designs... Another HBCU, the Hialeah State Herons have worn the double-blue color scheme since their inception. In addition to the Super Series playoff, the Herons take part in an annual yearly half-game length scrimmage tournament and festival with fellow HBCUs Alabama Tech, Alabama Christian, and Mississippi Christian that features an alumni game and marching band showcase. In addition to being an HBCU, Hilaeah State has a rich history of Hispanic student-athletes as well with several stars of Cuban descent. Hialeah State University Location: Hialeah, Florida Type: Public University Founded: 1927 Major Rivals: Mississippi Christian, Miami
  14. Up next we have the Central Texas Devils. After using a knock-off of the Duke Blue Devils logo for several years, the university went through a brand refresh in the early 2000s and again in 2012 to their current look. The Devils have absolutely no white on their uniforms, instead wearing their silver uniforms on the road. Central Texas University Location: San Angelo, Texas Type: Public University Founded: 1906 Major Rivals: San Antonio, Augusta
  15. Thanks guys! I have a spreadsheet as well as a word document for each conference, and that's what I've been working with. So for those following along, here is a graphic with the national champions on it. This is artistically important because it shows the outline of the trophy... Each year beginning in 1963, a game was played for the National Championship with all the teams competing part of the FCD (Football Championship Division). In 1978, it became Division I while smaller schools made up Division I-A and Division I-AA. In 2006, it became the Football Super Series and the name has stuck.
