Notes:

The NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, formerly known as Division I-A, Division I, and the University Division, does not hold a formal championship tournament. Before the advent of the Bowl Championship Series in 1998, the most generally accepted national football champion was the highest ranked team in the final Associated Press writers’ poll. Ohio State University also claims national championships awarded by the Football Writers Association of America in 1957 (AP rated Auburn as the nation’s top team) and 1961 (Alabama won the AP top ranking). If included, these would raise Ohio State’s total to seven, and the public universities’ total to 17.

 

In 1995 the University of Findlay was named co-champion of the NAIA Division II football tournament, as the championship game ended in a tie.
