Every year, college athletes are marketed in stores when their programs give their specific numbers to the companies to make their uniforms to sell at retail. We took a look at the Associated Press Top 25 preseason football poll and went to the official Web site stores of the teams to find out whose jerseys are being sold this year. This list probably isn’t perfect because it was hard to eliminate past players who wore jerseys that are still being sold because they didn’t have the names on the back. Only one Web site, named the players with the jerseys (Iowa).
