The football season is in full swing these days, so many football fans are looking for the best college football apps to follow scores, listen to games, and check odds. College football is an incredible phenomenon and is quite popular across the United States with good reason: everyone loves watching young, hardworking athletes work as team, especially when our favorites find success. And, of course, there is the collegiate pride.
As a disclaimer, I’m not an American, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I don’t have a personal interest in American football. However, I do have multiple American friends who absolutely adore the game and were kind enough to give me some insight. I’ve asked them to test out the apps and they confirm that they are accurate and reliable. I’ve also crosschecked the scores and commentary from the apps with other sources on the Internet, and they seem to check out pretty well.
Note: The 4 best college football apps for score, radio and betting were tested on a Sony Xperia Z. All of the apps on the list need an active Internet connection to display up-to-date information. The apps performed fine and there were no problems faced during testing. They are not in any particular order.
College Football Scoreboard
College Football Scoreboard is a straightforward college football scoreboard app and it delivers on every front. The interface is standard, familiar and easy to use. I had no trouble navigating through the app and finding the team that I wanted to see.
College Football Scoreboard gives you up-to-the-minute football scores, all the latest news stories, conference schedules and game times. You can also select your favorite team to quickly see the information that you care about the most. Overall the app is fast, provides a great information and allows you to share scores for bragging rights to social media.
There’s one downside, though. The bottom part of the screen is obscured by ads. While I understand that ads are necessary in a free app but would have liked if the interface accommodated them a little bit better.Show Downloads
Sports Alerts – NCAA Football Edition
The Sports Alerts – NCAA Football Edition app is a great way to get instant information about the games that are scheduled. You’ll be able to dive deep in the game with powerful stats and information. The app uses very little system resources and almost no data while updating scores.
The app also provides full team rosters, team schedules, rankings and conference standings. Basically you use this app to get alerts about when the game is going to start, score changes, lead change, choir and when the game ends. You can also customize your notifications, which is convenient since not everyone wants to be disturbed for every single update.
Overall I really like Sports Alerts, and appreciate how fast the updates are.Show Downloads
College Football Radio
College Football Radio is a great app to listen to live CFB radio streams. This app allows you to select radio stations that are streaming your favorite games, so that you never have to miss a college football game you want to follow.
In addition, College Football Radio will instantly provide you with college football scores, news and rankings. You can even check scores while the radio is playing in the background, so you can keep up with multiple games at once. You can also select your favorite team and their info will be displayed as soon as you open the app.
One of the best things about College Football Radio is that it’s not that data consuming. Sure it will still use a fair chunk like most any internet connected app, but it doesn’t drain data like most other radio or streaming apps.
On the other hand, I found the audio quality a little bit lacking, but not severe enough to be difficult to understand or severely impact your enjoyment.Show Downloads
I wasn’t able to find actual dedicated betting app on Android, I assume because it’s probably against the Google Play Store policies. However, I was able to find a great app that allows you to measure your odds and bet on games sensibly. The ScoresandOdds is backed by the leading website for the latest odds and liking fast scores so you’ll be able to better gauge the situation and hopefully win big.
What’s more, the app not only gives you scores for college football but also basketball, baseball, hockey and even NFL. So, even if you are having bad luck betting on college games, you can upgrade to the big leagues and bet on pro games and other sports, and see if you have better luck there.Show Downloads
