The Associated Press had been hinting for weeks that it would be counting down the Top 100 college football programs of all-time, and they finally released it on Tuesday afternoon. Starting at no. 1 all the way down to 100, the AP named the Ohio State Buckeyes as the best college football program of all-time. Here’s a little bit about what it took to determine the all-time poll, according to the AP.

“To determine the all-time Top 25, the AP formula counted poll appearances (one point) to mark consistency, No. 1 rankings (one point) to acknowledge elite programs and gave a bonus for AP championships (10 points).”

Below is the Top Ten, with other notables below it.

  1. Ohio State
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Alabama
  5. USC
  6. Nebraska
  7. Michigan
  8. Texas
  9. Florida State
  10. Florida

Other notables inside the Top 25 include LSU at 11th, Miami at 13th, Georgia and Auburn at 15th and 16th and Texas A&M at No. 18. Check out the AP’s full list of 100 by clicking here.
