If there's one college football season that led to playoffs more than any other, it's 1990.  Split
championship between 11-1-1 Colorado (who used 5 downs to beat Missouri) and 11-0-1 Georgia Tech who
ended up beating a fairly weak Nebraska team in the Citrus Bowl.  The Sugar Bowl jumped the gun to
get Virginia when they were #1 and 7-0 but went 1-3 the rest of the way in the regular season. And
most people felt #3 Miami was actually the best team but they lost their opener to BYU and then a
mid-season game to Notre Dame..
