College Football: Greatest Teams in the History of Each Major Conference

There are many great programs in college football that are rich in a deep-rooted winning tradition. Because it would be nearly impossible to list all of the greatest programs of all time, this list is an attempt to decide at least which teams are the best in the history of each respective conference.

The hardest part about doing this list is that many conferences have multiple teams that have a legitimate claim to being the best. For the purposes of this article I am not including the Big 12, because of its relative youth as a conference. Instead I am going to divide the Big 12 between the former Big 8 and the Southwest Conference.

I am also excluding Notre Dame because it has never been in a conference. It is also necessary that I not include conferences like the WAC, Sun Belt, Mountain West or Conference USA because of their relative youth and because for the most part accomplishments achieved by those schools pale in comparison to teams in the major conferences.
