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.[1][2]
