2025 CFP Championship Public Betting Splits

Stay tuned for 2024-25 college football public betting splits data for the upcoming season. Top sportsbooks will usually release this data in the weeks preceding Week 0.

Past College Football Championship Winners (CFP Era)

Year Champion Runner-up Final Score
2023 Michigan Washington 34-13
2022 Georgia TCU 65-7
2021 Georgia Alabama 33-18
2020 Alabama Ohio State 52-24
2019 LSU Clemson 42-25
2018 Clemson Alabama 44-16
2017 Alabama Georgia 26-23
2016 Clemson Alabama 35-31
2015 Alabama Clemson 45-40
2014 Ohio State Oregon 42-20

With consecutive titles in 2021 and 2022, Georgia is the only repeat winner of the College Football Championship in the CFP era (2014-present). Alabama leads the way with three national championships since the College Football Playoff was implemented.

Although TCU didn’t win the National Championship, they are arguably the top underdog story of the CFP era thus far. Sonny Dykes’ team opened as a +20000 longshot (0.5% implied probability) to win the National Title in 2023 and came one victory away from doing the improbable.

Table updated through 2023-24 CFP.

There are only six teams who have won a game in the College Football Playoffs, and both Alabama and Clemson have more CFP wins than the others combined. These two schools have simply dominated the CFP era.

No Independent or team from a Group 5 Conference has ever won a national championship in this time. Only one Group of 5 team (2021 Cincinnati) has even made the CFB Playoff since its inception in 2014. See the current odds to make the College Football Playoff in our tracker.

Active College Coaches with National Championships

Dabo Swinney (Clemson) 2
Kirby Smart (Georgia) 2
Jim Harbaugh (Michigan) 1
Jimbo Fisher (Texas A&M) 1
Les Miles (Kansas) 1
Mack Brown (North Carolina) 1

There are only seven active college football coaches with national championship rings. Alabama head coach Nick Saban has twice as many CFB Championships (7) as any other active college football coach.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart can pull into second place on the list of active college football coaches with national championships if he wins another title in 2025.
