Ohio State Tops AP’s All-Time Top 100 College Football Program

The Associated Press started ranking college football teams many moons ago.

Ohio State’s college football history sits among the goliaths of the sport. In the first ever Associated Press all-time Top 25, the Ohio State Buckeyes came out number one. The AP systematized more than 1,100 weekly polls from over 80 years.

The strategy behind the AP Top 100:

To determine the all-time Top 25, the AP formula counted poll appearances (one point) to mark consistency, No. 1 rankings (one point) to acknowledge elite programs and gave a bonus for AP championships (10 points).

There has only been three seasons in which the Buckeyes did not appear at least once in the poll since its initiation with a ranking of the nation’s top-20 teams on Oct. 19, 1936.
