Fall or autumn is the season in the US for football and baseball. Nowadays football fans are more interested in watching college football games than games played by professionals.

Fall blossoms with football

Fall has started; so also football season. The climatic season is getting cooler but the season for football is getting hotter. Fall is the season when we can find more football activities in America and Europe. It is the favorite season for games, especially for soccer and baseball in the US, as the air is a little cooler, the leaves are starting to turn colors, and people are relieved off their summer activities. Memories of the previous year return pulling youngsters into action.

Nowadays football fans are more interested in watching college football games than games played by professionals. A lot of fans believe that that the college game is far superior to the NFL's professional version of the sport. There are many reasons behind this change of popularity.

Six reasons why college football is more popular than professional football

1) College spirit is stronger than other feelings

Most of the people enjoy the college game more than the professional because there is still a collegiate spirit attached to the game. Games played by the college teams have no tags attached with them. They are fresh and enjoyable for their sportive spirit.

2) College teams are purer

Nowadays, most of the professional teams have tags of corruption which dwindle the sportive spirit. Commercialism has entered the field of games also and has corrupted it. But the players on the field of college games are not professional going on to the NFL or any other of such type and many of them are there simply because they enjoy playing. No wonder that people have a stronger feeling that college teams are purer than the professional.

3) Pride and prestige of their own

When players of one college play it becomes the prestige of the college and the region. It provides people with an opportunity to root to find "their own team". Generally people of the area would have attended that particular college or school, which further solidifies their claim on the institution. Even if people did not play the game themselves, still they use the word "our" when referring to their favorite school or college. It becomes a prestige and issue of pride for them, which is expressed in many ways, including college sports.

College games are more homely

4) Sportive rivalry between teams

College teams are represented by the whole college and all those who are connected with it. The entire region supports a particular team and creates more personal relationship. In some states, a college rivalry game can be the biggest sports event of the year. For example, game played Alabama versus Auburn.

5) College games provide occasion for social gatherings

Most of the people return to their youth memories by attending college games. They are occasions of social gatherings for them to refresh and share their memories with their friends and others. For most of the people, it is the season for tailgating, grilling, parties, and gathering for their memorable occasion at someone's house. They are occasions of food and conversation. Professional games may not provide them such sweet memories.

6) Professional games have become more expensive

Life has become harder today with the soaring expenses. People calculate the expenses they have to bear by attending games at a stadium which can easily be watched at home in their television. Moreover, professional football tickets, comparatively, have become more expensive and harder to get.
