College football Twitter directory: Official team, coach accounts for more than 125 teams

Within are links to the official Twitter feeds for every available FBS program's head coach and football account or athletic department account.

Hello. You're probably a college football fan who likes Twitter. If not, you should become one of us, provided you like either college football or Twitter.

No sport is better suited to social media than college football, which asks you to keep up with at least 125 teams of 100 players in ever-shifting conferences and to watch 60-something games at spastically staggered time slots between Tuesday night and early Sunday morning. It's a sport that requires a hivemind, and not just for news and scores.
