Whenever college football is on, it’s always a great time to reflect on past seasons and also analyze the way each team plays to better predict NCAAF betting odds before the next season commences.

NCAAF 2021 was a particularly great season for many teams, with lots of up-and-coming players smashing their performances out of the park.

Though some of the most iconic moments occurred on the field, others happened off-field in the recruiting department. Because there were so many amazing moments in the sport, it can be pretty time-consuming to comb through the highlights.

Whether you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit or want to quickly satisfy your curiosity about the 2021 season, here are the top 10 moments that stand out from the rest.

A Wild Hail Mary

In September, the Florida State Seminoles lost on a stunning Hail Mary throw by Jacksonville State Gamecocks. This occurred between Zerrick Cooper to Damon Phulyaw-Johnson. A 59-yard play later, with Florida State appearing not to tackle and being quite out of piston, it seemed like the end. However, Florida State soon recovered and performed well for the remainder of the season.

Debuting New Rules

This game between Illinois Fighting Illini and Penn State Nittany Lions was a completely bonkers game-changer. Literally.

A new rule was introduced. If a game is still tied after the second period of overtime, teams must host a two-point conversion shootout to figure out the winner. This rule was designed to quicken overtime play as teams tend to only alternate a single play each when it comes to this point within the game.

A Win For Michigan

Under Jim Harbaugh, the Michigan Wolverines finally managed to get over the hump to make their way to the College Playoffs. But their game against the Ohio State Buckeyes was what truly made a difference.

While coaching in Ann Arbor, Harbaugh never beat Ohio State. So it was doubly as sweet when the Wolverines had full control over the game and gave the house something to remember for a long time to come.

Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma Return

Legendary coach Bob Stoops stepped out of retirement to save the day during the NCAAF. By stepping up to take on the role of interim head coach for the Oklahoma Sooners, he was able to give them some much-needed direction in terms of their playing. He also guided them to victory over Oregon Ducks in the Alamo Bowl (47-32).

The Wild Coaching Carousel

There was a distinct lack of lifelong coaches for individual schools during this season of the NCAAF. Not even legendary names like Mario Cristobal stuck around with one team for too long! Though a lot of the schools found suitable replacements, it just goes to show the power of resources and long-term contract commitments within the sport!

Travis Hunter Switches Teams

After being committed to Florida State for a while, Travis Hunter switched to Jackson State on National Signing Day. This was due to the persuasive recruiting skills of Jackson State head coach, Deion Sanders, who is an inductee into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame and is generally a legend in his own right.

Texas A&M Aggies Beats Alabama Crimson Tide

The Crimson Tide’s loss to Texas stunned the entire college football community. Yes, Alabama made it through to the College Football Playoffs with another SEC title. However, it was this game that created shockwaves. Upsets make for great college football, and this game certainly lived up to expectations!

Lane Kiffin’s One-Handed Catch

After an Ole Miss Rebels win against the Tennessee Volunteers, there was plenty of debris thrown onto the field — with much of it aimed at the head of Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin. Lots of this came from spectators loyal to the Volunteers.

A water bottle was thrown but Kiffin used his athleticism to reach out and catch it with one hand before it could cause any damage. It wouldn’t be college football without the drama!

Bryce Young’s Heisman Moment

Bryce Young, a quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide, might have grabbed the Heisman Trophy throughout this game.

On a final drive, Young delivered a phenomenal performance that sent the game straight to overtime. Alabama would eventually win the game but Young’s pass to Ja’Corey Brooks in the last 30 seconds of the fourth quarter managed to tie the game.

Jared Casey

Kansas Jayhawks’ running back Jared Casey managed to catch the biggest pass of his career against the Texas Longhorns. This 2-point conversion won the game for Kansas (57-56) in overtime.

His crowd-silencing catch was one of the biggest highlights and most prominent feel-good moments of the entire college football season. If you want to ever re-live this moment, you’ll likely be able to hear Jared’s family screaming in celebration of his achievement!

He has well and truly cemented his legacy.


There were plenty of phenomenal moments to choose from, but these are the top 10 NCAAF moments in the 2021 college season you just have to know about.
