About This Quiz

In the big leagues, you have unions, agents, endorsement deals, draft picks ... the list of reminders that the NFL is a business is almost endless. Sure, everyone is passionate about the game, and owners will talk a big game about prioritizing winning and sportsmanship.

But at the end of the day, the best place to find football played purely for the love of the game and loyalty to one's team is on a college campus. These young men don't care about signing contracts or representing the latest supplement brand. For most, their college team will be the last opportunity to play organized football, outside recreational leagues or backyard games with buddies.

You can see as much in the way they play the game. The passion, the relentlessness, the fierce rivalries - they're all indicative of a group of competitors giving it their all simply because they care that much about it.

College football fans tend to be equally invested - if you don't believe us, try going into an Ohio State bar wearing Michigan's blue and maize colors, or getting a parking spot within a mile radius of LSU's "Death Valley" during a Saturday home game.

If you're a devoted fan of the brutal, graceful game, there's a chance you root for one of its most prominent teams. Answer these personality questions and we'll tell you which college team you cheer for - or at least identify most with!
