Best Answer

There is kind of more than one answer to this question. Since the AP poll started being used as the manner in selecting a national champion (1936) the most national championships by school are as follows: 1) Notre Dame (8) 2) Oklahoma (7) 2) Alabama (7) 2) Southern Cal (7) 5) Ohio State (5) 5) Nebraska (5) 5) Miami (FL) (5) 8) Texas (3) and a host of teams with 2 nat'l championships: Pittsburgh, Army, Tennessee, Mich. State, LSU, Penn State, FSU HOWEVER, from 1936-64, and 66-67, the national champion was declared BEFORE the bowl game was ever played, so the NCAA record book only lists the national champions since 1965 and excludes 66 and 67 from consideration of schools with national championships. Since 1965 (excluding 66 and 67) schools with most championships: 1) USC (5) 1) Alabama (5) 1) Miami (FL) (5) 1) Nebraska (5) 5) Oklahoma (3) 5) Notre Dame (3) 7) FSU (2) 7) Penn State (2) 7) Ohio State (2) NOTE: When national championship is split, both teams are credited with one national championship. UCLA UCLA won its one and only poll championship, a split decision with Ohio State, in 1954. UCLA was voted poll champion by UPI. Ohio State took home AP honors. Ohio State defeated Southern Cal in the 1-1-55 Rose Bowl, 20 to 7. UCLA did not play in a bowl.
