Vince Young should've won the Heisman Trophy that year. They need to have the balloting after all bowls are finished. He led the highest scoring offense in he nation at 50.2 per game including the Rose Bowl. The defense was outstanding as well in tying for 8th in scoring D with 16.4 points per game and 8th in pass D allowing 172 only yards per outing. I remember when ESPN matched 2005 USC against the top 10 teams ever and they said if Texas beat USC you had to put them at least in the top three.

They had 4 payers rush for 1000 yards. This was also the year that ND went to its first bowl game, the rose bowl were they beat a powerful stanford team that was coached by Pop Warner himself.
Superior game management skills and intensity that was unrivaled across the country. Fan support that puts over 100k in the stands at home and a traveling crew of thousands - doesn't hurt to have the most intellectually gifted coach since the Bear in Tuscaloosa either!
Alabama's first Heisman in running back Mark Ingram running through the sec. His back up Trent Richardson Who many think is better than him. Greg McElroy who refused to lose a game. Julio Jones possibly the toughest WR in college history. By far the best defense in the 21st century. These guys shut down one of the greatest QB's in college history in Tim Tebow.
Great talent... hard competition... unbeaten season... Roll Tide, Roll!
only undefeated team that year outscored opposition 473-92 averaged 43ppg and only gave up 8.3ppg
The 74 Sooners only ranked 17th? You people have to be daft. This was the greatest college football team ever assembled. They nearly all went to the pros.

outscored their opponents 550-0.
Would actually punt the ball on first down in the second half because they were up by so much.
This is the obvious choice for number 1. Kids these days only care about what happened in their lifetime, or what they can remember. Just because it happened before they were born or before T.V. coverage, doesn't mean it didn't happen or isn't relevant anymore. Yes, the game was different back then, but it as different equally for all teams. Michigan did something in 1901 that no other team could do, and all other teams were playing the same game with the same rules back then. This is something that will NEVER happen again.
Why is this team not ranked as the greatest ever? It is because there are way too many young folks with no concept of college football's traditions and TOO MUCH ESPN brain-washing. They actually think that college football began with video coverage and tend to rate only relatively recent teams as great, as evidenced by the voting results... Just look at the dates.More comments about 1901 Michigan Wolverines
the best D-fense ever. only allowed 2 points per game. good offense too. the best program ever. best coach ever.
Only allowed 25 points all season
ould beat our 99 team all day. That one loss is whats stopping this from being the greatest ever.
The defense outscored the first 7 teams of the season destroyed all competion
best 1 loss team of all time
Great pass catchers. Payton was gone but those who played with him were still there. Great running backs and OL.
Peyton manning was not on this team though, they were very good on defense with 11 nfl caliber starters, peerless price was most dynamic player on team and the Arkansas game was an instant classic
First BCS champions team. Roster includes: Peyton Manning, Tee Martin, Jamal Lewis, Peerless Price, etc
The ducks are the best team because they are ranked number 2 right now and hasn't lost a game yet also last year thy were in the bcs againts auburn but they lost but at lest they got to be in the bcs and I think they one of the best teams inthe country
They had an amazing offense and crushed every team in the Pac-10.
