The NCAA defines a game ball as a "prolate spheroid" which measures 10 7/8" to 11 7/16" long, 20 3/4" to 21 1/4" around middle and 27 3/4" to 28 1/2" around the long circumference. Wilson is licensed by the NCAA as having the official game ball. Wilson's website indicates the Wilson 1001 and 1005 are used by 24 D-I programs, and their footballs are stamped with the NCAA logo. Nike produces the Nike 3005, which is used by over 70 D-I programs. Spalding also produces the Spalding J5V Advance, which is used by Auburn. While Nike may provide footballs for more D-I programs, you would also have to account for all the D-IA, D-II, and D-III programs, where Wilson is likely used by a majority of the schools.

Balls used in an NCAA-regulated college football game are roughly 10 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches long. The circumference of the longer side of the ball is approximately 28 inches, and the circumference of the shorter part of the ball is about 21 inches. The average is approximately 11.5 inches long by 6.7 inches in diameter. An NCAA football differs from the NFL ball in that it has two 1-inch white stripes that are three to three and one-quarter inches from either end of the ball and located only on the two panels adjacent to the laces. It can be up to one-half inch shorter but only slightly narrower than NFL balls.
