611969 Penn State Nittany Lions

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...

621984 BYU Cougars

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

631980 Georgia Bulldogs

Anyone's great with a RB like Herschel Walker and a coach like Vince Dooley.

641919 Texas A&M Aggies

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.

652015 Baylor Bears

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!

661976 Pittsburgh Panthers

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 least

671994 Nebraska Cornhuskers

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!

781986 Penn State Nittany Lions

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!

792008 Utah Utes

They will remain undefeated forever

802003 Kansas State Wildcats
