I was reading about the graduation rate for college football players and the NCAA site has a big database of Division I Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Data but it seems a little outdated.

The top college with the most football players graduation was Notre Dame with 94% while Arizona came in last at a weak 41%.
The data for the University of Iowa is pretty interesting. From the PDF I read, here are the GSR details for the University of Iowa:
