The Big Ten(11) has more NC's than the ACC * It depends on who you ask, but a rough idea would be this: counting the AP from 1936 to present, the UPI from 1950 to 1995, and CNN/USA TODAY/ESPN from 1996 to present: Big8/12 - 14, SEC - 14, Big10 - 13, Pac10 - 9, and ACC - 5. This answer is close, but not guaranteed.....just a quick count for a rough idea of conference strengths.

Listed below and to the right is the order of conferences with the number of college football national championships in parentheses.* Big 12 - (16)* SEC -- (15)* Big Ten -- (13)* ACC -- (9)* Pac-10 -- (4)* Big East -- (3)But, here's some caveats:The above list only includes college football championships from 1936 to present. Importantly, it only includes one champion each year (official NCAA selector). As you know, college football does not have a playoff system as most other college sports do. So, traditionally, champions were crowned by various coaches and sports writers polls. More often then not, various polls named more than one team as the champion.For the purposes of this page, our list of football national championships by conference only counted the College Football National Champion as named by the Associated Press (AP) (1936 - 1997); and from 1998 on - the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) Champ.So, for instance, the list above only includes 6 Alabama football national championships. Of course, as discussed at Best All-Time NCAA College Football Program, depending on which polls you count, Alabama could be credited with up to 12 college football national championships.One more caveat -- we included National Championships won by schools that are now part of a particular conference. So it based on current affiliation, not historical affiliation. This favors the Big Ten because we are counting (for them) 2 NC's by Penn State ('82 & '86) that of course Penn State won before they joined the Big Ten.For more comprehensive information check out this pdf: College Football National Champions (prepared by Tex Noel of 1st-N-Goal). It has a listing of every college football team that ever won a National Championship from 1936 on -- and includes official selectors as well as total selectors -- and much, much more.And, Tex created more statistical info about NCAA College Football National Championship teams since 1992, organized by conference at National Champsionship Teams By Conference.You can read more of Tex' stats at SEC Football Statistics and even contact him via a form on that page.So, picking the Best or Top All-Time NCAA College Football Championship Conference is really more of an art than a science. It is quite subjective. See SEC vs Big Ten Debate for more about the subjectivity of this debate.Also, the list above shows the Big 12 with most all-time football championships. This is largely due to the great teams Oklahoma and Nebraska had over the years. Of course, most of those championships came before the Big 12 was even formed. Nebraska and Oklahoma were both in the Big 8 Conference. The Big 12 has only been in existence for 12 years.The Southeastern (SEC), by contrast, began in 1932, so each of its 14 championships was earned by a team that was in the SEC at the time, and still is.Also, if you look at more recent college football history - the SEC leads the pack. Since 1990, the SEC has more NCAA football championships than any other conference with six.Since the BCS system began in 1998, the SEC leads with 4 BCS Championships. And, they've won it each of the past 2 years and 3 of the past 5 years. You can read more about most of those games at Biggest All-Time SEC Football Victory.The ACC and Big 12 both have 2 BCS Championships. The Pac-10 and Big Ten both have 1.OK, all of those caveats add up to one thing:THE SEC IS REALLY THE TOP ALL-TIME NCAA COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP CONFERENCE. Source:

What ncaa conference have the most national championships?

Across all sports, the Pac-12 has more national championships than any other conference. In college football, it is difficult to determine which conference has more national championships than another for several reasons. First, teams shift conference affiliations from time to time. For example, Nebraska won three national titles int he 1990s as a member of the Big 12, but Nebraska is now a member of the Big Ten. The Big Ten now claims the titles as having been won by a member institution even though the titles were not won when Nebraska was a member institution. Additionally, there have often been multiple claimants to the title of "national champion" in any given season. As the NCAA does not award a championship of its own in the Divison I-FBS category, it has been historically left to the polls to decide the "national champion." Finally, the long history of college football leads to early skewed numbers when relatively few teams participated. Princeton and Yale, no longer part of the top division of college football, claim 44 national championships between the two schools. Add eight from Harvard, six from Penn, three from Cornell and one from Dartmouth would mean the Ivy League far and away has more championships (62) than any other conference. Then again, the Ivy League has not won a "major" college football championship since 1935 (Princeton).
