National Champions in Football Player Arrests

August 20, 2015

Mike Rosenberg, a former sports reporter for the San Jose Mercury News, took to Twitter to share the results of his research on the arrests of college football players in the last five years. Washington State University earned the top spot (31 arrests), followed by the University of Florida (24), a tie for third with both the University of Georgia and Texas A&M University (22), and the University of Oklahoma (21) rounding out the top five. Washington State also had another distinction: because its football team has not been winning many games in recent seasons, it was one of three universities with more arrests (13 more arrests, in fact) than victories in the last five years.
