According to the final AP rankings, how do the programs rank all-time, by decade, and by era? Which ones were the best over the 2010s?

Take all the AP final rankings and use our CFN scoring system – the AP national champion gets 25 points, the No. 2 team 24, No. 3 23, and so on down to the bottom.

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.
