While waiting for the draft and then the upcoming college football season, as well as my own morbid curiousity, I did some checking into some college football historical stats. I went and found the 10 colleges with the most national championships, and I devised a little "powerhouse scale" to see how they'd match up against one another. Call me biased, but it's just a fun little game.

Championships are worth 10 points, Conference worth 4, Division worth 2

Notre Dame (796-258-41) - 13 Championships (1919-20, 1924, 1929-30, 1943, 1946-47, 1949, 1966, 1973, 1977, 1988)
Alabama (758-293-43) - 11 Championships (1925-26, 1930, 1934, 1961, 1964-65, 1973, 1978-79, 1992), 25 Conference Championships, 5 Division
Michigan (832-273-36) - 10 Championships (1901-04, 1918, 1923, 1932-33, 1948, 1997), 41 Conference Championships
USC (707-297-54) - 9 Championships (1931-32, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1974, 1978, 2003-4), 33 Conference Championships
Oklahoma (737-284-53) - 7 Championships (1950, 1955-56, 1974, 1985, 2000), 36 Conference Championships, 3 Division
Pittsburgh (620-448-42) - 6 Championships (1910, 1915-16, 1918, 1937, 1976), 1 Conference Championship
Minnesota (606-422-44) - 6 Championships (1934-36, 1940-41, 1960), 16 Conference Championships
Nebraska (789-311-42) - 5 Championships (1970-71, 1994-5, 1997), 46 Conference Championships, 3 Division
Ohio State (757-294-53) - 5 Championships (1942, 1954, 1957, 1968, 2002), 31 Conference Championships
Miami Hurricanes (507-285-19) - 5 Championships (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, 2001), 9 Conference Championships

Conference Total - Big 10 3, Big XII 2, Big East 2(Miami has won no championships in the ACC), SEC 1, Pac-10 1

Powerhouse Ranking
Michigan - 264
Nebraska - 240
USC - 222
Alabama, Oklahoma - 220
Ohio State - 174
Notre Dame - 130
Minnesota - 124
Miami - 86
Pittsburgh - 64

How did you determine who won a "championship" as there are everyone and their mother awarding championships, from Sagarin to the UPI.

Also, by giving points for divisional titles, you skew the ranking in favor of the SEC, MAC, & Big XII, as they are the only conferences with divisions (until the ACC gets divided this season).

Where are Princeton and Yale, who have won MANY national championships?

I went with the stats posted on http://the-w.com/redirect/http://nationalchamps.net/NCAA/database/index.htm . I went as impartial as I could be, if I wasn't then Nebraska wouldn't be listed for 1997. The divisional thing does slightly skew, but that's only two points. You'd have to win divisions three times to even get a one point over a conference win.

National Champs didn't list Princeton, Yale, or Harvard. I will look into them now, though.

This has all the "official" national champs, and the NCAA has their own list http://www.ncaa.org/champadmin/ia_football_past_champs.html which includes all "major" championship selecting bodies.
