It’s official: Ohio State is the greatest college football program of all-time.
Well, let’s backtrack a bit. Ohio State isn’t necessarily the best program in the history of the sport, but according to the Associated Press, no school has had as much success as the Buckeyes in the 80 years that the organization has ranked college football teams.
The AP ranked its top-100 teams according to its poll dating back to 1936, the first year that it started ranking squads. Teams earned points in this mega ranking by getting one point for an appearance in the AP Top-25, two points for a No. 1 ranking, and 10 points for an AP championship. You can check out the entire list right here, but this is what the top-25 looked like:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Florida State
- Penn State
- Texas A&M
- Michigan State
