I’ve seen more and more people asking “What does CFB mean?”, probably because the abbreviation was only popularized more recently.
On ESPN tickers and newspaper segments, college football was traditionally represented by “NCAAFB”, standing for NCAA Football. However, in the mid 2000’s, the shorter “CFB” became more popularized.
CFB simply stands for College Football. The shorter abbreviation now adorns referees official patches, and is used far more often than the old NCAAFB counterpart. A large reason this was popularized is likely the reddit forum “r/CFB”, one of the first (and fastest growing) forums to use the new abbreviation.
CFB means much more than college football to us, though; it’s a way of life. That’s why we are CFB Select, bringing you the best CFB content on the internet. Check out our CFB home page to see what we’re up to.
