WE ARE THE UNDISPUTED NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. ALL OPEN SOURCE ONLINE ENCYCLOPEDIAS BETTER RECOGNIZE.

The first edition of the College Football Playoff is in the books, and by every metric, it was a smashing success. Ohio State clobbered the two top seeds on their way to their undisputed national championship. That means Ohio State gets a big confetti party, a call from President Obama, a bunch of new t-shirts, and perhaps most importantly, their names etched forever in the halls of history. And by that, I'm talking about Wikipedia. Let's have a look at what everyone's favorite research aid has to say about where Ohio State sits, historically, after their monster win.

First, let's take a gander at which schools have the most College Football Playoff championships:

Wait, that it'? Just Ohio State? DO YOU EVEN LIFT, REST OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL?

Okay. So Ohio State has more championships than the rest of the known universe combined. But what championship winning percentage?

I'd say it's pretty hard to improve on that. Oregon's got some ground to make up.

That's just the championship game though. What program has the most playoff wins?

Awesome. And which conference has the most wins and championships?

BAW GOD, THAT'S OHIO STATE'S CONFERENCE.

And real quick, can you refresh my memory, just WHO is the current champion again?

Looks good ... until Alabama fans figure out how to edit Wikipedia and try to claim this title too.

Go Bucks.
