College Football Three-Peat.  When was the last time it was done? 14 teams have won back-to-back college football championships over the years (including co-champions), including the likes of Alabama (multiple times), Oklahoma (multiple times) and Nebraska (multiple times).

Winning three in a row? That's a bit more rare.


The first time to win three college football championships in a row was Princeton, who won three titles from 1878-1880 (co-champion in 1880).

After that, Yale would absolutely dominate college football for the next decade, as that program won FIVE titles in a row from 1880-1884, followed by another three titles from 1886-1888.

Michigan would become the next college to win at least three college football championships in a row, as they would win four straight from 1901-1904 (they were co-champions in 1903 and 1904).

California would become the next team to three-peat, as they would win from 1920-1922 (co-champions in 1921 and 1922).

Minnesota would become the final school to win three college football titles in a row, as they won in 1934, 1935 and 1936.

Yale and Minnesota were the only two schools to win at least three undisputed titles in a row.


Georgia has a good chance of becoming the first team in over 80 years to three-peat as national champions.

Georgia currently has the best odds to win the national title next year, though they will be facing fierce competition from the usual teams, including Alabama, Ohio State and others.
