That mark represents the 10th-highest rating achieved by any team since 1982, but it trails entries from some of college football’s other most celebrated dynasties — including the 1990s Nebraska Cornhuskers, the 2000s USC Trojans, the 2008 Florida Gators, the 2012 Alabama Crimson Tide and even the 1988 Miami Hurricanes.
National Champion: Notre Dame
In Jimmy Johnson's final season as coach, the 1988 Miami Hurricanes came within one point and a controversial call to another National Championship. Miami defeated five ranked teams, including No. 1 Florida State 31-0. Facing Notre Dame in the famed "Catholics vs. Convicts" game, the Hurricanes lost 31-30 in South Bend after failing on a two-point conversion. Miami won nine games by double-digits.
