College football season is the most exciting season in all sport. There are so many great college football teams that are scattered throughout the country, but here is my top ten list of the best college football teams of all time.
1. 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers
Such a powerhouse team. They were loaded with so much talent. What was worse for opponents was opponents knew they were going to run the football and still averaged over 400 yards rushing per game. There was so much talent on the team that they 10 All American players since they weren’t near as good as the other starters. Tommy Frazier led the way and he’s one of the all-time great QBs.
2. 2001 Miami Hurricanes
I still think that Nebraska was #1, but there was a talent level on this team that most football fans have heard of. Clinton Portis, Andre Johnson, Jeremy Shockey, Frank Gore, and that is just a few. On this roster, you could find at least 6 Pro Bowlers. They are close to Nebraska, but I’ll keep them at #2. ESPN even had them no. 5, which seems drastic.
3. 2006 Texas Longhorns
Vince Young quarterbacked this team. He was one of the greatest college players of all time in my opinion. He lost so much talent from a year earlier, and he led this team to an incredible season. The 2006 Rose Bowl was an incredible game to watch which was won by Texas.
4. 1992 Alabama Crimson Tide
Their defense was key to their success. The numbers of allowing only 9.3 points per game and 50 yards rushing per game are unheard of. This defense could arguably be the best that ever took the field.
5. 2005 USC Trojans
Any team with Reggie Bush in the backfield would have been a great team. He may be the best college football player in history. They did have a great defense by allowing less than 9 points per game. They did win two championships in a row, but lost the third. Still, they are my #5 pick.
