Who Is the College Football Team of the 21st Century?

Nine years into the 21st Century, it is time to evaluate the polls to determine the "Team of the Century."

The methodology is simple and unbiased.

Take the final AP poll and award points, just like AP ballots, 25 points for a national championship on down to one point for a 25th-place finish.

While many of the teams that dominated the 20th Century of college football, such as Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Michigan and Southern California made the list, it is interesting to see who are the "nouveau riche" of the college football world.

One thing is for sure—while the rich may still be rich, the popularity of football in America, as well as scholarship limitations, has led to much more equity than we had during the 20th Century.

I do want to be clear—this is not my opinion. If it was my opinion, the No. 3 team would be No. 1 for the decade, and the No. 7 team would probably be No. 2.

Anyway, I hope that you all enjoy this slideshow, and please feel free to leave any comment.
