Notre Dame

Notre Dame

Since there is no "official" national champion in FBS college football, the answer would depend upon the criteria you want to use.

According to the schools themselves, Alabama claims 13 while Notre Dame claims 11. But each school uses different and subjective criteria to determine which seasons are "claimed" as championships. Most researchers would argue that Alabama's criteria is somewhat looser than ND's, and that if the same qualifications were applied to each school, ND would have at least 13 as well.

If you count the total number of seasons where ANY recognized selector chose Alabama or Notre Dame as champion, then Notre Dame has 21 while Alabama has 17.

If you only count seasons where the school finished #1 in either the AP or the UPI/Coaches poll, the two schools are tied with 8 titles each.

If you only count BCS championships, Alabama leads 1-0.
