Best College Football Teams
The Contenders: Page 2
How quickly people forget! Is this a popularity poll or fact! This SC team was in the top 3 ever!
Um Hello? This was the best team ever. Sam Cunningham and OJ Simpson?! They blew out every team they faced.V 2 Comments
Was undefeated with the hardest schedule, up to the BCS championship.
Oklahoma sooners are probably the most successful ncaa football team ever. They've had so many heisman trophy winners. They've had a ton of first round draft picks and one of the hardest places to play
The Oklahoma Sooners have the facts to back them up... they are one of the best football teams ever.
A great Orange Bowl victory over # 2 Maryland by 20 to 6 put an exclamation point on the season.
The Oklahoma sooners are the best college football team because we have dominatedV 3 Comments
Michigan didn't get the chance to play Nebraska so in the end we got humiliated badly. This team was still better than the 1998 team.
Wasn't the score 40-9. Even Phil Fullmer said of Nebraska " if this isn't the best team I don't know who is."
If Manning doesn't have a blown out knee, the Vols beat Nebraska in the Orange Bowl
Splitting national title with Michigan instead of Nebraska.. Pathetic Michigan
Clemson Tigers are the best!
Only one opponent played the Sooners within 14 points and four failed to score a touchdown. At the same time, OU led the nation in scoring offense with an average of 43 points per game to finish the season as the only undefeated team in the country at 11 . Oklahoma was loaded with talent, evidenced by its eight All Americans, the most of any season to that point. OU's wishbone offense, triggered by running back Joe Washington, fullback Jim Littrell, and quarterback Steve Davis, averaged 73.9 rushing attempts per game, which still stands as an NCAA single season record, 1 as does its 21.4 rushing first downs per game.
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.
Leroy and Dewey Selman along with Joe Washington and Barry Switzer's first championship.V 1 Comment
2 Million GIs were coming back from the war and many entering college on the GI bill. As a result, this was an environment where battle hardened soldiers were playing college ball and for college coaches it was like having unlimited scholarships. This was the most competitive era in college football history. To be national champs in this era defined you as the greatest team ever.
Yea their good my whole room is bulldog stuff I love harry dog you my friend are awesome and who let the dogs out who who who
GO DAWGS! GO DAWGS! Hershal Walker was our man! Love AJ Green, too!
I don't know how Georgia is not #1. Unlike most teams we are great every year no matter the circumstance. We have had Herschel Walker, Aaron Murray (still have), Jarvis Jones, AJ Green, Knowshon Moreno, Fran Tarkenton, Champ Bailey, Matt Stafford, Frank Sinkwich and so much more. GO DAWGS
we owned every one on the fieldV 2 Comments
Perfect team, Carnell "Cadillac" Williams (NFL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR 2006), Jason Campbell, John Vaugh.
Should have been in the national championship
Easily the most balanced and best team of that season, no body could have come close to them in the championship game. War dam eagle! - gooner4life
I agree defienatly should have been in national championship
Auburn is a joke glad they didn't make to the title gameV 1 Comment
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
The Army Football Team of 1945 is undoubtedly the greatest of all-time. A lot of the teams listed above Army couldn't even compete against that Army team which had not only a dominant defense but had one the greatest backfields in with Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis rolled over every opponent.
Vince Lombardi ya know the greatest coach of all time was on their staff. Their head coach Red Blaik ran the team without tolerance for any failure. The team was more disciplined than the army itself and as a result they could've beat anyoneV 2 Comments
Yes this team was great. The defense was better than 2015 (ironically), jalen hurts broke records and made history, and we had several first round picks. Roll tide.
Not better then the 1995 nebraska cornhuskers
Incredible history. This team changed all of college football. The NCAA managed to dismantle their efficacy. Teams break their arms patting themselves on their own backs when they defeat a football program that was undone by the NCAA. All of these schools need to cut it out, there is only one "U". Often imitated...
Put any of these teams against the Canes in the National Title game, those teams will have the fight of their lives.
Even though they lost to penn state, we had so many first rounders off that team.. Too many to countV 2 Comments
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.
outscored their opponents 550-0.
Would actually punt the ball on first down in the second half because they were up by so much.
550-0? Come on. What? Not number one?
