Default College Football Teams with no University in name?

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

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)
