Which college team has won the most national championships in college football?

Cincinnati bearcatsSince the question does not restrict the answer to a particular division, the answer is the Mount Union Purple Raiders, who have won 10 Division III National Championships.There are a couple of Division I-A teams who "have" more than 10 national championships, but few, if any, of them were actually "won", as is required by the parameters of this question. Prior to the inception of the BCS system, national championships were awarded by various polling groups (AP, UPI, Coaches, etc.). The only thing any team "won" in those years was a popularity contest vote. Nothing was won on the field of play. Nothing was won in a game. With the inception of the BCS in 1998, the two "best" teams in the country faced each other in a "national championship game", and the national champion was the team that won that game. 1998 was the first time a Division I-A national championship was "won" by anyone.There are those who say that even the BCS does not crown a "true" national champion, because they disagree with the way the "two best" teams are selected. I sympathize with this position, and agree that we will never have a "true" national champion in Division I-A until the NCAA adopts an 8-team or 16-team playoff. But, in the meantime, at least the national champions can claim that they won the national championship, because they did win it, in a game, on the field, even if some believe the team they beat wasn't the strongest possible opponent.But it makes no difference for the answer to this question, because the most national championships any Division I-A team has "won" under the BCS system is 2, which doesn't come anywhere near Mount Union's 10. By the way, the Division III national champion is, and always has been, determined by a playoff. So all 10 of Mount Union's championships would be considered as having been "won", by ANYONE'S standards.

Who won the first NCAA football championship?

It may have been Fielding Yost of Michigan back in 1901. Michigan football had just beaten several local teams and people thought it would be interesting if they played Stanford (I think) in California in the Parade of Roses (hence, the Rose Bowl). Michigan won 49-0. The 1901 Michigan team was remarkedly successful, but not the first NCAA champion. The NCAA does not crown a champion in the top division, but rather leaves it to "Bowls and Polls" to decide. That is why they are called "National Poll Champions" in the NCAA Official Records Book. The first "poll champion" listing is shared by Princeton and Rutgers, in 1869.

What college team has the most football championships?

For Division I - Football Bowl Subdivision (most commonly thought of as College Football around the nation)...Officially the NCAA does not officially name a National Champion for their Football Bowl Subdivision "FBS" (formerly known as Division I-A). They rely on outside organizations to name a National Champion. Currently that organization is the Bowl Championship Series. The teams with the most BCS National Titles are the Which_NCAA_football_team_has_won_the_most_National_Championships_in_modern_footballof Florida and Louisiana State University (LSU) with two. The BCS has been around for 11 years, so if that is what you would consider "modern era" that is your easy answer.Other than that, really the only thing you can do is look at All Time National Championships. Before the BCS, there were a plethora of National polls and rankings, so there was no clear national champion every single year before 1998.As for all time champions... Alabama claims the most all-time with 12. Notre Dame and Michigan both claim 11 andhttp://wiki.answers.com/Q/Which_NCAA_football_team_has_won_the_most_National_Championships_in_modern_football#, Oklahoma, Southern Cal all claim 7.
