One of the best parts about college football is the variety of offenses we get to see on a weekly basis. From Georgia Tech’s triple option to Ohio State’s spread attack to Texas Tech’s air raid, there’s something for everyone.

Today, we’re focusing on speed. Think Oregon during the height of the Chip Kelly era.

Keep in mind: Fast, high-octane offenses don’t automatically win. Texas is on this list and it suffered perhaps the most disappointing defeat of Week 1. But giving up 51 points was the culprit there. Teams like Penn State fit the speedy and free-whelling bill and still manage to win at a good clip.

Still, this conversation isn’t about victories and defeats. It’s about tempo and explosiveness.

Here are seven teams that play it fast and easy:

Penn State

When Saquon Barkley is your running back, you play fast by default. Why? Barkley is not the ‘three yards and a cloud of dust’ type. While some teams run the ball in order to eat clock and move the chains, Penn State’s running game is as explosive as its passing game … which is saying something, given how good quarterback Trace McSorley is.
