NATIONAL CHAMPIONS HISTORY.
I did a search of college football national champions history. After looking at the results and adding up the Big Ten National Champions and SEC National Champions since 1901,I found that the Big Ten has 35 titles to the SEC 17 titles.
Now, I have included Notre Dame in the Big Ten because, lets face it, they play pretty much a Big Ten schedule every year. I would like to add that in the 1901 season, Michigan had out scored it's opponenets 550-0!! I know it's a long time ago, but that is still pretty impressive.
