Best Answer

Football teams are not named after states in College Football. Rather, the teams represent colleges and universities and are referred to by the name of the school (for example, "Michigan" is the football team from the University of Michigan and "Florida State" is the football team from Florida State University).

Most "flagship" institutions (major public universities with the name of the state in its title) sponsor football programs.

The notable exceptions are Vermont and Alaska. Other than that, the other 48 states have at least one football program at an institution which has a name that includes the name of the state (and many have more than one).
