Best College Football Teams
The Contenders: Page 4XW
Richard Nixon said Texas was #1 in 1969, so it must have been true! Laugh out loud Whatever! Penn State had a great offense led by future NFL all pros, Franco Harris and Lydell Mitchell. #1 Defense in the country, giving up only 8 points a game led by Jack Ham, Dennis Onkotz and Mike Reid. Held #6 Missouri to 3 points in the Orange Bowl and finished 11-0. Also, these Nittany Lions hadn't lost a game in 30 games! BEST IN THE COUNTRY!
Agree. Would have been to much speed for Texas to handle! Too much color on the field for Texas at the time. Lets play!
Bush-White, Marroney-Barber, Williams-Brown, McFadden-Jones, blah blah blah! The orginial dual backfield was the best, Franco Harris and Lydell Mitchell! We are...V2 Comments
Not the best team in the country that year. A very undervalued team indeed. The 83,84, and 85 BYU teams put several players in the NFL. Many of those players went on to have good careers in the league. The 84 season was a weird one. Washington, Oklahoma, or maybe USC were the 3 best that year. BYU was probably number 4. Still, the Cougars were really good that year. Playing in the WAC never did anyone favors. This Cougar team gets overlooked.
BYU should at least be top twenty five
Anyone's great with a RB like Herschel Walker and a coach like Vince Dooley.
Dana x Bible was the coach at that time that's also the season the 12th man tradition started
One of the best teams in College Football for 2012,2013,2014, and 2016!
Did not give up a point the entire season.V2 Comments
The big 12 is basically a 7 on 7 passing tournament with the exception of Oklahoma who is the only big 12 team that knows defense is actually a thing
Why is this even on here? Baylor played in the Big 12 where defense is optional and tough schedules do not exist. This is so dumb.
Should have been the year but injuries plagued them. Very explosive offense!V1 Comment
Totally dominating team...8 NFL stars on this team... Tony Dorsett, Hugh Green, RIcky Jackson, BIll Fralic, Matt CAvenaugh among others on this team... I'm a UGA fan and watched this team destroy a good Ga. Team in sugar bowl.
One of the best college football teams of all time should be much higher
2007 wvu mountaineers above this team what a joke they didn't go to the bcs championship. The 76 Panthers however destroyed #2 Georgia in the sugar bowl 27-3 should be top 15 at leastV1 Comment
You all put the 1994 Penn St team in the top 10, but the 94 Huskers won the National Title, by beating Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis, and the Miami Hurricanes, in the Orange Bowl (Miami's Home Feild). Led by Tommie Frazier, Brook Berringer, Lawrence Phillips, and The Pipeline, the greatest offensive line ever. I agree the 95 Huskers is the number 1 team ever, but the 94 Huskers have to be top 5!V1 Comment
LSU was the BCS national champions nobody cares about the AP national champions
I'm about to drop dead they are ranked ahead of a championship Pittsburg team?!
Although they may not have won the Big Ten, they were outstanding in clutch plays and pulled through when they needed toV2 Comments
They wer a championship team how is Georgia tech rated higher than them
Amazing backfield with 4 NFLers (DJ Dozier, Blair Thomas, Steve Smith and Tim Monoa) and good o-line. GREAT defense lead my Shane Conlin! Forced 7 turnovers vs the great 86 Canes squad and made Vinny Testeverde and Jimmy Johnson cry!
They will remain undefeated forever
