The NCAA does not select a champion in Division I-FBS college football-the only varsity, NCAA-sponsored sport to not have an official championship.
The NCAA does, however, recognize championships that are awarded by "major selectors;" organizations that are generally and widely regarded as major sources. Today, those sources are the BCS (in conjunction with its agreement with the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll) and the Associated Press. Beginning with the 2014 football season, the College Football Playoff will replace the BCS.
The college football national championship is the highest team award in the sport. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame has won the most championships in history.
No, but they have won the most games without winning a national championship in NCAA history.
Danny Ford guided Clemson to its first and only national championship in 1981, and remains the youngest head coach in NCAA history to win a national title, accomplishing the feat at the age of 33.
You might wish to rephrase and narrow the question. As it reads now, it is wide open and could refer to any team in any sport at any time in history. One might assume that, since the question is asked under the heading of 'football history' that it refers to a football championship. But the question remains, 'Championship of what?' Do you mean championship of the National Football League? Professional leagues that pre-dated the NFL? College football? Canadian football? We are not mind-readers. Please give some thought to a question before asking it.

Tony Dorsett is the first player in football's history to have ever won the Heisman Trophy, an NCAA National Championship, and a Superbowl ring. Interestingly enough, he won the Heisman and National Championship as a senior at Pitt in 1976, and the Superbowl the very next year as a rookie for the Dallas Cowboys. Two other Heisman Trophy/National Championship winners have appeared in the Superbowl, but lost. Charles Woodson won the Heisman and a National Championship at Michigan in 1997, and appeared in Superbowl 37 as a starting cornerback for the Oakland Raiders, but lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Matt Leinart won the Heisman and a National Championship at USC in 2004, and appeared as the backup quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals in Superbowl 43, who lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Reggie Bush has become the second player in football's history to have won an NCAA National Championship ring (2004 USC), Heisman Trophy (2005) and a SuperBowl ring (New Orleans Saints 2010).
