Top 10 Division 1 Schools Whose Football Team Overshadows Their Basketball Team

My previous list talked about the schools who had better basketball programs. Here’s schools whose football program is more successful than basketball.

The Top Ten

1 Alabama Alabama The Alabama Crimson Tide refers to the 21 men and women varsity teams that represent the University of Alabama.

I think last year their basketball program was successful due to Collin Sexton. - 2storm

Yeah not even close. Football is way more dominant - Randomator

2 Ohio State Ohio State The Ohio State Buckeyes are the athletic teams that represent The Ohio State University, named after the colloquial term for people from the state of Ohio and after the state tree, the Ohio Buckeye.

Same as Alabama they are more dominant in football by far - Randomator

3 Oklahoma Oklahoma

Sometimes they are legitimate in basketball but football has always been there sport - Randomator

4 Clemson Clemson The Clemson Tigers are the athletic teams representing Clemson University. They compete as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I level (Football Bowl Subdivision, primarily competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference for all sports since the 1953-54 season.

Basketball has never really been the Tigers thing - Randomator

5 Washington Huskies Washington Huskies

Washington has been more successful in football than basketball - Randomator


They’ve been basically irrelevant in basketball but decent in football - Randomator


Again more successful in football than basketball - Randomator

8 Georgia Georgia The Georgia Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs are the athletic teams of the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs compete in NCAA Division I and are members of the Southeastern Conference.

Again they have had more success with Football. But that applies to most of the SEC - Randomator

9 Auburn Auburn

They always seem to be a decent football team and can be a real thorn in Alabama’s side sometimes - Randomator

I actually think Auburn’s basketball is slightly better than their football team. Their basketball is definitely 10x better than Alabama’s. Though I can’t say the same about them football wise. - PackFan2005

10 Kansas State Kansas State

They are mediocre in both sports but slightly better in football probably because Bill Snyder has been there forever - Randomator
