All-Time Winning Percentage (FBS Closed Set)
 

Complete records of all-time college football results are published by several sites including James Howell's database, Chris Staasen's database, the College Football Data Warehouse, Winsipedia, and more. The table below presents an alternative approach.

The first college football game in history was played between Rutgers and Princeton on November 6, 1869. The first college football game played between current FBS teams came 18 years later when Michigan and Notre Dame faced off on November 23, 1887.

The results of the all-time closed set of games between current FBS teams are provided below. Teams are ranked according to winning percentage (note: ties are calculated as half-wins). Each team's record against the top-25 and top-10 teams on this list is provided. The final set of columns represents each team's all-time record against the "Big 66" opponents, defined as conference members of the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC, plus independents Notre Dame and BYU.
