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.
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Florida State
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.
