    They went from 5 to 6 overall, but the real indivator is how many points they've earned in the last 15 years compared to the teams now in the top-5:

    848 - Alabama
    707 - Ohio State
    478 - Oklahoma
    392 - USC
    224 - Notre Dame
    147 - TTUN

    This has been updated after the final polls for the 2020 season.

    OK, here's how this was calculated. I took each team's ranking in every year-end poll since the AP started in 1936. Once 2 polls were involved (the Coaches Poll started in 1950), I always used the higher ranking. Sliding scale points were awarded for every year that a team ended up ranked, and 10 points were deducted for each losing season. The scale was determined before seeing where teams ended up.

    For each year since 1936, a team earns points based on these criteria:

    NC (#1) in either poll = 100 points
    02 -> 05 = 65, 55, 50, 45 points, respectively
    06 -> 10 = 40, 37, 34, 32, 30 points
    11 -> 20 = 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10 points
    21 -> 25 = 08, 06, 04, 03, 02 points
    non-ranked, but .500 or above = 0 points
    losing record for the year = minus 10 points

    Here are the all-time totals, updated after the 2020 final polls:

    01. 2934 - Alabama
    02. 2766 - Ohio State (passed Oklahoma this year)
    03. 2758 - Oklahoma
    04. 2486 - Notre Dame
    05. 2097 - USC
    06. 2069 - Michigan (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    07. 1809 - Texas
    08. 1660 - Nebraska (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    09. 1599 - Penn State (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    10. 1465 - Tennessee (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    11. 1403 - LSU
    12. 1339 - Florida State (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    13. 1299 - Georgia
    14. 1215 - Florida
    15. 1203 - Miami
    16. 1163 - Auburn
    17. 0927 - Clemson
    18. 0854 - UCLA (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    19. 0853 - Michigan State (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    20. 0700 - Arkansas (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    21. 0665 - Washington
    22. 0553 - Texas A&M
    23. 0542 - Georgia Tech (-10 for losing record in 2020)
    24. 0509 - Wisconsin
    25. 0479 - Ole Miss
    26. 0389 - Pittsburgh

    Other schools: Minnesota(351), Iowa(349), Colorado(323), Boise St(278), Syracuse(277), Oregon(270), Stanford(265), Army(259), Va Tech(238), BYU(209), West Va(194), Purdue(35), Oklahoma St (2), and Illinois (-77)

    Since 2007, I have created separate ratings by adding National Championship credit for those earned prior to 1936, on a sliding scale based on 12-year periods.

    1869-1899 - 10 points for each MNC (no top teams here, almost all Ivy League)
    1900-1911 - 25 points for each MNC
    1912-1923 - 50 points for each MNC
    1924-1935 - 75 points for each MNC

    Here are the all-time totals, updated with the pre-1936 MNC points:

    01. 3209 - Alabama (MNCs in '25, '26, '34, 2/3 for '30 = 275)
    02. 2766 - Ohio State
    03. 2758 - Oklahoma
    04. 2711 - Notre Dame (MNCs in '24, '29, '30 = 225)
    05. 2297 - USC (MNCs in '31, '32, 2/3 for '28 = 200)
    06. 2244 - Michigan (MNCs in '01, '02, '23, '33 = 175)
    07. 1809 - Texas
    08. 1660 - Nebraska
    09. 1599 - Penn State
    10. 1465 - Tennessee
    11. 1403 - LSU
    12. 1339 - Florida State
    13. 1299 - Georgia
    14. 1215 - Florida
    15. 1203 - Miami
    16. 1163 - Auburn
    17. 0927 - Clemson
    18. 0854 - UCLA
    19. 0853 - Michigan State
    20. 0700 - Arkansas
    21. 0667 - Georgia Tech (MNCs in '17, '28 = 125)
    22. 0665 - Washington
    23. 0603 - Texas A&M (MNC in '19 = 50)
    24. 0514 - Pittsburgh (MNCs in '10, '16, '18 = 125)
    25. 0509 - Wisconsin
    26. 0501 - Minnesota (MNCs in '34, '35 = 150)
    27. 0479 - Ole Miss
    28. 0359 - Army (MNCs in '14, '16 = 100)
    29. 0349 - Iowa
    30. 0323 - Colorado
    31. 0278 - Boise State
    32. 0277 - Syracuse
    33. 0270 - Oregon
    34. 0265 - Stanford (MNC in '26 = 75)
    35. 0238 - Virginia Tech
    36. 0209 - BYU

    Note - USC and Bama received 50 points, rather than 75, for disputed titles in '28 and '30, respectively

    Note - Illinois, with MNCs in '14, '23, and '27 fails to make the top 35.
