Teams with the most wins in a single season in college football history

Clemson rolls Alabama for the CFP national title

Clemson became only the second team in college football history and the first team since 1897 to go 15-0 in a season when it beat Alabama in the 2019 College Football Playoff national championship game.

Only one team has done better than Clemson and Penn: Yale in 1894.

The 2018 Clemson Tigers will still be remembered as one of the best teams in college football history because of its 15-0 record. The same goes for Alabama, which became the seventh team in history to finish 14-1.
