If someone were to ask you to rank the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, you probably wouldn’t have that difficult of a time doing so, after putting together a resume of each player’s win-loss totals and passing accomplishments, among other factors.
But what about for college football? Things get a bit murkier there. For one, you’re comparing eras. But more importantly, you’re comparing vastly different offensive schemes, vastly different levels of competition, and even different levels of college football divisions in general. Point being: it’s not nearly as easy.
That’s why we’ve ventured to put together our attempt at ranking the greatest college football quarterbacks of all time, in reverse order – from 25 to 1:
25. Kellen Moore (Boise State)
As the quarterback for those feisty Boise State University teams that all the “big name” college football teams were terrified to play (because of the very probable chance they’d lose), Kellen Moore became the first quarterback in FBS history to win 50 games in his career.
Leading the Boise State Broncos to four-straight Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championships and being named the WAC Offensive Player of the Year three years in a row, Moore was also a two-time first-team All-American despite playing in a mostly “overlooked” school.
