Understanding NCAAF Scores & Game Results
In college football, there are four levels of competition within the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), but the most prominent and relevant level is the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).
The semifinals rotate among six major bowl games: the Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and Peach Bowl. The two highest-ranked teams are seeded first and second and receive home-field advantage in their respective semifinal games.
College Football Scoring
College football scoring works by accumulating points through touchdowns, field goals, and safeties, with each carrying a specific point value. The ultimate goal is to score more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.
There are several ways to score points in college football, and each has its own specific value. The most significant way to score is by scoring a touchdown, worth six points, which involves carrying or catching the ball into the opponent’s end zone. After scoring a touchdown, teams have the option to attempt a one or two-point conversion to gain additional points.
Another way to score is by kicking a field goal, which is worth three points. A field goal is awarded when a team kicks the ball through the opponent’s goalpost from a distance or on a free kick. In some cases, a team can also score a safety -which is worth two points- by tackling an opposing college football player in their end zone or forcing them out of bounds behind their goal line.
NCAA Football Scores & Past Results
This is a crucial part of betting on this sport, and most bets revolve around the scoring system.
Each NCAAF game is divided into four quarters, 15-minutes long each. Like in most sports, the game’s purpose is to finish with the most points when time runs out. However, what makes football so unique is the number of different ways you can score, plus the value of each score.
Because the NCAAF is just for college students, it is an amateur level of football. Players can leave college and try to go professional in the NFL.

NCAAF Scores & Betting
All NCAAF scores follow in the footsteps of the NFL. Each touchdown is worth six points, and, after a touchdown, a team has the option to either kick an extra-point field goal attempt for just one point, or go for a two-point conversion.
The two-point conversion is just running a play from a short distance from the goal line. Each NCAAF team only gets one try at an extra point or a two-point conversion after every touchdown; if they fail, they only get six points on that drive. If an offense cannot score a touchdown on a drive, they can elect to kick a field goal for three points, if they are close enough.
A defense can earn two points after tackling an offensive player in their own endzone, which results in a safety; this is a very difficult thing to do. The defense can also score by causing a turnover and running into the opposing team’s endzone.
