Bowl Championship Series??? Ha! Let the President Decide!

Postby merc » Wed Jan 04, 2006 10:39 am

With Texas and USC playing tonight for this years college football national championship, I thought I'd ask this question.

Before the Bowl Championship Series, the NCAA Football Champion was decided by polls, including ones from the Associated Press and United Press International(Coaches Poll).

However, the last time Texas was declared the national champion, many think that it was actually the US President who decided the champion by publicly declaring Texas to be the best college team... prior to the bowl games.

Who was this US President, what season (year) did this happen, and who were the final top three unbeaten teams in that years season ending AP poll?

My answer is off by 1 team. Put USC in my answer and take out Ohio State.

That's the correct answer.

Scotsman had the correct answer but forgot the year. I had 1 team wrong. We both realized our mistakes after our answers were posted. Technically noone has the answer 100% correct.
