Can you name the teams that don't have university in their name. Out of the 119 NCAAF Bowl Subdivision teams (like LSU, USC, Georgia)?

Note:You have to think about these because a team like Cal is actually named University of California-Berkeley.

LSU - Louisana State University
USC- University of Southern California
Georgia - University of Georgia

all three of them have university in their name... however Georgia Tech doesnt. its full name is the Georgia Institute of Technology

The whole "system" is a scam to bring in more nationally popular teams to get bigger sponsors for bowl games. They have no integrity, thats why they select who plays for a title instead of making a team earn it by winning 3 games.

Other than Georgia Tech, the only schools that come to mind without "University" in their name would be the service academies.

Army - United States Military Academy at West Point

Navy - United States Naval Academy

Air Force - United States Air Force Academy

I can only think of three from the ACC, and three military academies:


-ACC:
Boston College
Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology)
Virginia Tech (Virginia Technical Institute)

-Independents:
Army (United States Military Academy at West Point)
Navy (United States Naval Academy)
Air Force (United States Air Force Academy)
