College Football season is just around the corner and for many, the next few months is more of a religious experience than a sporting event. To help the College Football fans stay in tune with their favorite Collegiate teams, there is a host of Windows 10 apps available in the Store.
These apps not only deliver the latest news, scores, stats, standings and rankings, but some have the ability to stream live games to further satisfy that gridiron itch. While there is a variety of apps in the Windows Store that focus on specific teams, this collection of apps focuses on options that are not limited to one team. As an added bonus these free apps also come in handy for covering other sporting events or leagues during the off-season.

CBS Sports has been covering College Football for years and the official CBS Sports Windows 10 app nicely delivers that coverage to your Windows 10 PC and Mobile device.
The NCAA College Football section of the CBS Sports app includes scores, news, poll rankings (AP, Coaches and Football Championship Series), conference standings, stat leaders, tweets, video highlights and individual team information.
CBS Sports has an established history of doing a fantastic job of covering College Football and the Windows 10 app is a great option for tapping into that coverage. The free app is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, as well as Windows 8.1 PC and Phones.

WatchESPN is a free Windows 10 app that is available for PC, Mobile and Xbox One that delivers a boatload of ESPN programming to your device. You can watch live games and ESPN studio shows with around the clock access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, SEC Network, SEC Network Plus, ESPNews, ESPN Deportes and Longhorn Network.
Programming is sorted by sport and you can search ahead to see what ESPN shows or games are planned for a specific date. A reminder can be easily added to your calendar and you can alert your friends of upcoming games. Just keep in mind that access to WatchESPN is determined by your television provider. Providers currently offering access to WatchESPN include AT&T, Bright House, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Dish, Google Fiber, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, Time Warner and Verizon FiOS TV.
WatchESPN is a great option for your Windows 10 Mobile device while away from the house. The Windows 10 PC or Xbox One version is perfect for the times you need to keep tabs on multiple games at once or when your wife wants to watch her favorite movie on the big screen TV and bumps you out of the living room.
WatchESPN is a free app available for Windows 10, Xbox One, as well as Windows 8.1 PC and Phones.

MSN Sports is a feature rich and informative Windows 10 app that has been around for some time. The Sports app covers a wide range of sporting leagues and events that include the NBA, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, the NFL and NCAA Football.
Coverage for NCAA College Football includes access to top stories, scores, video highlights, image slideshows and the latest rankings in the AP and Coaches polls. The layout of MSN Sports is clean and easy to navigate around. I would have liked the ability to filter out scores by NCAA Conference to make it a little easier to find specific games. As an alternative, you can tag favorite teams for easy access to the app's side menu.
MSN Sports does a good job of delivering the basics on College Football and is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, as well as Windows 8.1 PC and Phones.

While WatchESPN delivers live video streams of sporting events to your Windows 10 device, the ESPN app delivers the news, standings, schedules, stats and scores to your device.
ESPN offers the ability to filter the College Football coverage by conference (SEC, PAC-10, ACC, etc.) or you can view things based on the Top 25 rankings. The ESPN app offers support for scoring alerts and for your myESPN account. I have to admit the scoring alerts are a nice touch for those quiet times when accessing the game could get you in trouble (e.g. dinner, a wedding, visiting the in-laws, etc.).
The ESPN app does a fantastic job of keeping you up to date with all the comings and goings of College Football. It may lack the streaming videos that WatchESPN or CBS Sports has, but it is still a solid sports information resource. As with the other apps in this collection, the ESPN app is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, as well as Windows 8.1 PC and Phones.
