College 3-4 Teams?

Which college defenses are playing 3-4 schemes this year. Historically, I thought Virginia Tech and BYU were two of them. Who else plays the 3-4 in college?

(I'll edit/update the OP as posters submit them)

BYU
Virgina
Alabama
Cincinnati Bearcats
Cal
Wyoming
New Mexico
Michigan

I think Alabama does.
Virginia Tech is one of the best

Virginia Tech, I thought it was Virginia with Al Groh's 3-4?? Could be both.

My bad, I was thinking of Virginia. Specifically, I was thinking of Clint Sintim last year. I thought he would have been a good OLB to take a shot at in last years draft.

Doesn't LSU play both 3-4 and 4-3??
Haven't seen KSU much this year but i've never seen them play in a 3-4 before. Especially when you hear bout Dorsey having problems adjusting to 3-4/ I know for sure Tyson Jackson played DE in teh 4-3. Maybe they switch it up

Nevermind, they probably switched up their defense when Nick Saban left.
The Cincinnati Bearcats run a 3-4. Interesting that a couple of the top 5 teams run this system.
I thought that Ndamukong suh is a 3-4 NT at Nebraska, meaning they run the 3-4.

Ndamukong actually takes up the entire line, so they play a 1-6. Works well against spread teams.

The Wyoming Cowboys play a 3-4 with their 220 pound linebackers.
