Whether it's a colossal upset, a shocking play or a historical result, the best games of all time will always stick in our minds. In honor of the 150th anniversary of college football, here is an all-time ranking of the best games in the history of the sport.

I would go with
Boston College/Miami (Flutie)
Texas Tech/Texas (Crabtree catch)
Texas/USC game (Vince Young)
And a pregame fight to start it...yeah baby.
I remember that OU/NE game in 71. Rogers’s punt return was the game. Neither could stop the other.
The 2001 GMAC Bowl.
Don’t laugh. Look at the score, point swings, individual and team records, etc.
It was absolutely wild - especially the 4th quarter. One of the best ones ever. Go to youtube and watch the videos of it.
Wize mi skool on the loozing side of the best game?
Another great game...
Appalachian State 34....Michigan 32.......2007
The most amazing part was the series of events that had to happen for a rematch. Texas beat Nebraska, and a few other crazy upsets.
And now that I think about it, an overtime national championship game win over Georgia with a backup qb on 2nd and 26 doesn’t qualify, just because Bama won. Go to hell, twice, Scooby.
I got the score wrong. FSU upset UF in the regular season game.
Yeah one of those ‘Bama v. UGA recent games should have made the list.
December 2, 1893 Annapolis, MD Navy over Army 64
December 1, 1900 Philadelphia, PA Navy over Army 117
I’d keep going but the truth is that there are a huge number in this series that were close and classic nail biters where the championship was on the line for one or both of them...and it was the last game of the year for everyone.
The ‘63 game was particularly significant after JFK’s assassination and featured Staubach leading Navy over Army in a down to the last drive game.
Lazy journalist. 150 years of college football and ALL 10 greatest games are in the last 53 years? The odds of that are roughly 3 to the 10th power or 1 in about 50,000. Where are the 100-year old games?
I can’t remember the year but it was in the 60’s. Alabama vs Ole Miss. Archie Manning against Scott Hunter. Howard Cosell said that it was the greatest game ever.
Why Bama gotta be in there three times with losses?
Agreed. Anytime Michigan loses, I’m good with that.
Jars my memory about the Texas v. Arkansas game that Nixon attended.
You tell 'em. Roll Damn Tide!
Washington (Sonny Sixkiller QB) vs. Purdue (Otis Armstrong RB) Sept 18, 1971. Huskies win 38-35.
