Which college football programs are the greatest of all-time according to the UPI and USA Today Coaches final polls?

It’s been Alabama’s decade with three national titles making it far and away the best program of the 201os so far according to the final USA Today Coaches Polls. Who else have rocked over the decade?

Oregon and Stanford haven’t won a national title, but their consistent greatness helped put them in the high-rent district. Michigan State’s emergence pays off, and Ohio State and Florida State – with their respective national championships – have them ready to move up soon in the USA Today Coaches Poll final rankings of the 2010s.

Taking all the UPI and Coaches Poll final rankings, CFN devised a scoring system giving every AP national champion 25 points, the No. 2 team 24, No. 3 23, and so on down to the bottom.
