King of the Polls
Tim Layden
January 10, 2000
Nebraska, with its three national championships, in 1994, '95 and '97, has to be included in any debate about which school fielded the college football team of the 1990s. So, too, must Florida State, which won two national titles, eight of 10 bowl games, didn't lose more than two games in a season and finished in the Top 4 of the final AP poll each year. The Seminoles' streak of 13 straight final Top 5 finishes is the longest—by six years—of any school since the inception of the AP poll in '36.—David Sabino
