In honor of college football's 150th season, we asked USA TODAY'slongtime computer rankings expert Jeff Sagarin to do the impossible: Compile a list of the top 150 teams in college football history.

Given how much college football has changed in just the last 20 years, not to mention the wishbone era and the single wing era, it was a daunting task. But Sagarin did what he does best: working his formula and crunching numbers.

"The ranking method used in this retroactive look was to combineawon-loss-tiemethod with a pure score method," Sagarin explained via email. "Combining those two methods prevents an extreme in one method from dominating the process.

"To achieve a high rating, a team must have a great won-loss record, have

won its games by decisive scores, and also have played a decent schedule.

If a team's schedule was weak, then it essentially needed to be undefeated

and have won by huge scores."

Sagarin's formula led to the 1945 Army team, featuring backs Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis, being ranked No.1.

DIFFERENT TEAM: Three years from its Clemson loss, Ohio State now has vertical passing game

WATCHABILITY RANKINGS: Prioritizing the 39 bowl matchups

"The Cadets won all their games by impressive marginsand played the toughest schedule in the country for that season," Sagarin wrote.

The data for the seasons 1869-1945 was collected by his longtime friend Bob Rosiek of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and theUniversity of Michigan (1970). To make the data meaningful,the seasons from 1920-1945 have about 300 teams rated.

"Beginning with 1946-1992, Bob added teams and scores to mypre-existing files," Sagarin wrote. "From 1993 onward, it was relatively straightforward in knowing which teams to include — simply all FBS (I-A) and all FCS (I-AA)."
