The University of ]V[ichigan Wolverines football program claims 11 national titles earned in their 132 seasons of playing college football. The first as far back as the very early 1900s — 1901 to be exact – and last most recently in 1997.
]V[ichigan teams have won said titles under the guidance of men with names such as Yost, Kipke, Crisler, Oosterbaan and Carr.
]V[ichigan trails only their Cowboys Classic opponent Alabama (14), Yale (26) and Princeton (28) for titles claimed by the schools themselves. The Wolverines are tied with USC and Notre Dame.
In the infancy of college football, earning titles was primarily a two school race between Yale and Princeton. That is until ]V[ichigan showed up and changed the game for ever.
