The Associated Press just confirmed what we’ve always known: the state of Texas dominates all things college football. We landed eight schools in the AP‘s new ranking of the all-time best college football programs, outpacing every other state. There’s enough Lone Star love in there for just about every college football-loving Texan: University of Texas and Texas A&M were the only Texas teams to crack the top 25, but Texas Christian University, Baylor, Houston, Southern Methodist, Texas Tech, and even Rice all made the top 100.
Here’s the scoring system the AP used to compile the rankings:
One point for poll appearances, “to mark consistency.”
Two points for No. 1 rankings, “to acknowledge elite programs.”
A ten-point bonus for AP championships.
