The Associated Press released their top 100 college football programs of All-Time.

Over the last 80 football seasons the Associated Press has ranked the best teams in college football; but for the first time since 1936 they have complied an all-time Top 100 list.

This list is based off a formula that counts AP poll appearances (1 point), No. 1 rankings (additional point) and finally AP championships won (10 points).

The top five teams in order are: Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama and USC.

Check out the full list here.

Oregon State ended up, No. 65 on the list which unfortunately is dead-last in terms of Pac-12 schools, right behind Utah.

Here's how all of the Pac-12 schools fared.

USC 5th
UCLA 17th
Washington 20th
Colorado 27th
Oregon 28th
Arizona State 30th
Stanford 32nd
Cal 45th
Arizona 54th
Washington State 59th
Utah 64th
Oregon State 65th

Oregon State taking the No. 65 spot on the list seems about right. Especially considering the fact that they endured 28 consecutive losing seasons between 1971 and 1999. It's also surprising to see Colorado so high on the list (at No. 27). They've had their recent struggles since joining the Pac-12 and its easy to forget their storied history as a very strong college football program.
