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 2000s?

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.

Oklahoma started the 2000s with a national title, Texas finally got over the hump under Mack Brown in 2005, and the two were in the mix for top five spots year after year. Florida got two national championships under Urban Meyer, USC came up with two under Pete Carroll – including a whopper of a BCS controversy with a split title – but the Sooners and the Longhorns were the consistent stars.
