    Six teams with recruiting chops to win first title of modern era

    14 teams have won a national title since the bowl coalition began in 1992: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and USC.

    That leaves 116 teams in the FBS who have not won a national championship since 1992.

    We at 247Sports often look at college football through a recruiting lens. And it is with that in mind that I have crafted this list.

    Coincidentally, our friends at CBS Sports attacked the same topic from a program trajectory perspective and wound up with the same teams. That both perspectives on the topic reached the same conclusion suggests these teams are clearly on a "sooner than later" path to reach the Promised Land.

    Georgia
    Penn State
    Notre Dame
    Washington
    Texas A&M
    Oregon

    Has it been that long since Tony Rice led the Irish to victory in the Fiesta Bowl? Maybe it has.

    32 years or in other words before many of the people posting on this board were born. Yes. It’s certainly been a while.

    I actually like Ok State over several of those teams. I don’t think they can do it, but they are my long shot to win the Big 12 and make the playoffs

    Oregon and Notre dame are a good QB away right now. Ian Book would need to take a giant step forward but if he did they have a lot of talent spread all around.

    Fledermaus Scheiße.

    Tennessee has the coaching staff and an AD that knows what it takes. They're gonna win the recruiting wars. They're gonna build the football program, and the Vols are going to hoist that NC trophy.

    I didn’t realize this said “recruiting chops”, list makes more sense now. I need to read a bit more carefully
