But nothing helps to make an argument quite like cold, hard data.ESPN college football insider Phil Steele compiled the FBS records and determined the teams with the best win rates over the past decade.Unsurprisingly, Alabama leads the pack with a record of 127-13. Given that they’ve won five national titles and eight SEC titles, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise.Coming in second is Ohio State, which despite only winning one national title in that span has been the dominant force in the Big Ten. They’ve lost more than two games in a season only once in the past 10 years.Here is the full list from Steele:15. Michigan State – 91-4114. Appalachian State – 89-3813. Georgia – 96-3912/11 (tie). TCU/Oklahoma State – 94-3610. Florida State – 97-369. Oregon – 99-338. LSU – 97-327. Wisconsin – 102-336. Stanford 102-325. Oklahoma – 105-284. Clemson – 112-273. Boise State – 109-242. Ohio State – 115-191. Alabama – 127-13FBS records last 10 years1 Alabama 127-132 Ohio State 115-193 Boise St 109-244 Clemson 112-275 Oklahoma 105-286 Stanford 102-327 Wisconsin 102-338 LSU 97-329 Oregon 99-3310 Florida St 97-3611 TCU, Okla St 94-3613 Georgia 96-3914 App St 89-3815 Michigan St 91-41— Phil Steele (@philsteele042) August 18, 2019Perhaps the most surprising name to see on the list so high is Boise State. The Group of Five titans haven’t been in the national title conversation since their Western Athletic Conference days, but have won at least eight games every year since 1999.The inclusion of Appalachian State on the list may also seem a bit out of place. Though they now dominate the Sun Belt Conference, the Mountaineers spent half of the previous decade in FCS.How, if at all, will this ranking change after the 2019 season?last_img read more
