American football in the NCAA

Another extremely popular sport in US universities is American football. Two separate football tournaments are now held at the national level, the first in the “cup” subdivision (it is he who is considered the most prestigious among American students), the second – in the “championship” subdivision.

Cup (Bowl) matches between football teams is traditional for American universities. This tradition dates back to 1902, when in Pasadena, California, in a match called the “East-West Tournament”, football players from the University of Michigan and Stanford University met (Michigan then won with a score of 49-0). Since 1916, such matches have become annual, and since 1923 they have received the name “Pink Cup” (“Pink Bowl”, Rose Bowl) after the name of the new stadium built in Pasadena and having a cupped shape. The Rose Bowl is traditionally held on January 1st (or January 2nd if the first is Sunday) and has for decades hosted the winners of the Big Ten Conferences.) and “Pacific 12” (Pacific-12). Since 2015, the Rose Bowl has been one of the matches of the final part of the national tournament.

“Pink Cup” immediately became extremely popular and similar games began to be held in other cities in the United States. The oldest annual matches, which have been held since 1935, are the Sugar Bowl (Sugar Bowl, held in New Orleans, Louisiana); “Orange Cup” (Orange Bowl, Miami, Florida) and “Sun Cup” (Sun Bowl, El Paso, Texas). The number of annual cups has steadily increased, reaching eight by 1950, eleven by 1970, fifteen by 1980, nineteen by 1990, twenty-five by 2000 and thirty-five by 2010. Cup games are extremely popular,when there were almost one hundred and seven thousand fans in the stands.

Now in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, a playoff tournament is held annually at the end of the regular season games between the best teams. Its first stage, semi-final matches, are hosted in turn (on a three-year cycle) by the most famous cups: Rose BowlSugar BowlOrange BowlCotton Bowl “Cotton Bowl”, Arlington, Texas), Fiesta Bowl (“Fiesta Cup”, Glendale, Arizona) and Peach Bowl (“Peach Cup”, Atlanta, Georgia). The winners of the semi-finals play among themselves for the title of the best American college football team.

In addition to the actual sports awards to the winners of certain competitions, the association also awards special scholarships and prizes to athletes with high academic results; demonstrate high moral character; served as an inspiration and others.

The NCAA ‘s most honored award is the Theodore Roosevelt Award, whose winners were outstanding athletes during their studies and later became outstanding citizens of their country. Among the recipients of this award are former US Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush; US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; astronaut and Senator John Glenn; Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley; famous track and field athlete Jesse Owens and other famous Americans.

The Hall of Champions, a museum and exhibition center dedicated to college sports, has been created at the NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana.
