Each year, the New America Foundation's Higher Ed Watch blog takes the universities whose football teams are among the top 25 of the Bowl Championship Series rankings and lines them up based on the academic performance of members of the football teams.
The foundation says it calculates the difference between the entire football team’s graduation rate and that of the male students at the university; the graduation gap between black and white students on the team compared with the same gap among the overall school’s male population; and the gap between the graduation rate of black football players and that of black men at the school.
