Back in the day, before the Florida State football program was a powerhouse, then coach Bobby Bowden tried to put his team on the college football map by playing said powerhouse teams.
To prove his Seminoles were every bit as worthy on the college football landscape, Bowden would schedule games against Oklahoma or Michigan or even Nebraska in the late 1970s and early 1980s to showcase a tough defense and an offense that was ever growing.
The plan paid off, as Florida State became arguably one of the best college football programs in the country during the last 1980s and early to mid-1990s.
Other football programs may not have followed that model, but they too have learned that in order to become a powerhouse on college landscape, winning on the road and protecting their own field are crucial to winning national titles.
And in the process of doing this, some football programs are rising from the ashes and reviving their own schools back to prominence.
This year, there are a handful of schools that are taking control of the BCS and college football, but there are more programs that are providing parity amongst the best in the country. One thing is for certain; in order to win a national title and become an elite college football time, there has to be a balance of winning both at home and on the road.
While running the table and remaining undefeated is nearly impossible these days, there are teams proving this season could be one of those years where several teams could be headed for an undefeated season by taking care of business.
Here are a list of teams that can get it done in any venue across the country. In sports lingo, we call that dominance.
