Default Affiliated college teams?

Hi,

Just wondering if Cowboys have a certain college team they follow or is that a whole different thing and everyone supports a different team.

As I am aware, college football is completely different to the NFL in terms of who you support, there is no link of an NCAA team to an NFL team. You could support a team that is closest to your NFL team (eg. I support Jags and UCF, both close). I'd reccomend Texas A&M or Texas Longhorns as close-ish to Dallas.

Yep, as has been said, no affiliation. Plenty of Texas based Uni's though, here's a few:

Texas 'Longhorns'
Texas A & M 'Aggies'
Texas Tech 'Red Raiders'
Baylor 'Bears'
TCU 'Horned Frogs' (Texas Christian University)
SMU 'Mustangs' (Southern Methodist University)
Rice University 'Owls'

I'll bow down to your Texas College knowledge. Outside of sticking the word 'University' next to any city i can think of e.g. Austin University, i'm all out.

My mind kept on coming back to Stephen F Austin State, but I told myself I was wrong and it was the "Austin" bit which was throwing me, turns out it's located in Nacogdoches, Texas moral of the story, trust your gut.
