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.

There is a difference. NFL footballs are larger, longer and heavier. NCAA footballs are smaller, shorters and lighter.
