Football question

I know that Wilson is the official football for the NFL, and I believe that they are also the offical football for the NCAA. (I say this because I’ve seen the Official NCAA Wilson footballs in sports stores near me.

If this is indeed the case then how come I saw Florida State and Miami using a Nike football during their game last year?

I know they are both Nike schools, but doesn’t Wilson have a say and a financial interest in having all college schools use Wilson footballs?

I was under the impression that Nike was the official NCAA football. I googled for a cite, but couldn’t find one.


Ugh. That page says:

So, apparently, it’s voluntary.
