Stripes around the ends of a football were used initially to help locate the ball during night games.

One key rule difference between the NFL and NCAA football is the parameters for a catch inbounds. An NFL receiver must have possession with both feet inbounds, whereas the NCAA receiver needs only one.

Yes, an NCAA football is smaller than the NFL ball. This size difference makes transistion to the NFL hard for QBs and Kickers.

If you are talking about the ball, the answer is NO, the official NFL ball is more narrow than the ball used in the NCAA. If you are taking about popularity, then NFL is more widely followed because it is advertised much more. However, there are many more NCAA football teams than there are in the NFL because the skill level in college is much lower, allowing for more participants.

The NFL does have conferences -- two of them. The American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFL). The two conference winners play each other in the Super Bowl.

The width of a football goal in the NFL is 23' 4". In the NCAA, the goal is 18' 6" wide.

All footballs that are high school, college, and NFL level are the same. There is no physical difference besides the look of the ball.
