UTSA is second largest school that’s never played football

Currently, the largest school that participates in the NCAA but has never hosted a football team is Utah Valley University with an enrollment of 32,670, with UTSA coming in right behind them at 30,395. However, there are plenty of schools who previously had football, but have since seen it disbanded, including New York University with an enrollment of 50,917.
