National Championship Foundation
The National Championship Foundation (NCF) was established by Mike Riter of Hudson, New York. The NCF has retroactively selected national champions for each year from 1869 to 1870 and from 1872 to 2000, and its selections are among the historic national champions recognized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in its Football Bowl Subdivision record book.
This section is incomplete. This is because lead says selections were made through 2000, but the table ends with 1905. (September 2016)
The following list identifies the college football national champions as selected by the National Championship Foundation.
