According to the final AP rankings, how do the programs rank all-time, by decade, and by era? Which ones were the best over the 1990s?

Take all the AP final rankings and use our CFN scoring system – the AP national champion gets 25 points, the No. 2 team 24, No. 3 23, and so on down to the bottom.

Florida State won two national championships and owned the decade throughout with a top four finish in every season. It was also the start of the BCS era in 1998. The AP mattered as a big part of the puzzle, but it would still crown its own champion. That would become an issue in the 2000s.

1990 Colorado; 1991 Miami; 1992 Alabama; 1993 Florida State; 1994 Nebraska;
