It was the era of Alabama with four national championships and coming very, very close to a few others. Clemson rose up over the second half of the decade to be a superpower, but Ohio State was great, Oklahoma was always in the College Football Playoff mix and … it was Alabama’s decade.

Oklahoma started the 2000s with a national title, Texas finally got over the hump under Mack Brown in 2005, and the two were in the mix for top five spots year after year. Florida got two national championships under Urban Meyer, USC came up with two under Pete Carroll – including a whopper of a BCS controversy with a split title – but the Sooners and the Longhorns were the consistent stars.

Florida State won two national championships and owned the decade throughout with a top four finish in every season. It was also the start of the BCS era in 1998. The AP mattered as a big part of the puzzle, but it would still crown its own champion. That would become an issue in the 2000s.

Miami turned into the team of the 1980s with its three national championships and the swagger and style to go with them, but Nebraska had the most overall success in the AP poll. There wasn’t a national title, but the program was in the fight year after year.

Nebraska started the decade off with two national titles, Alabama ended with two national championships, and Notre Dame managed two of its own. But it was Oklahoma that turned into the star of the 1970s with back-to-back national titles with two second-place finishes and three third-place runs.
