Every season in almost every sport, there are favorites that the "experts" point to as the most likely to be around deep into the playoffs.
Everyone else is considered underdogs and long shots.
But every once and a while, one of those underdogs or "Cinderella" teams, separates from the rest of the pack to challenge and sometimes even win a championship.
(Unfortunately, college football makes it nearly impossible to have someone come from nowhere to win it all, but that's another discussion for another day).
What comes next are the most unlikely champions in history, given where they were when their season began.
