Has Kentucky ever won a national football championship?
Kentucky was ranked #1 by Sagarin Ratings in the 1950 season.
The consensus #1 team that year was Oklahoma. They were voted #1 by the Associated Press, Berryman (QRPS), Helms Athletic Association, Litkenhous. United Press and the Williamson System.
I guess you could say that in 1950, Kentucky had a piece of the action.
Yes. In 1942 West Virginia University won the National Basketball Championship. Although the NCAA might prefer that people forget, in 1942 the NIT was the tournament deciding the National Championship. The NCAA tournament was only 3 years old and teams consistently chose the NIT over the NCAA, as they do the NCAA over the NIT today. WVU finished 16-4 and was one of the 8 teams invited to the NIT, held at Madison Square Garden…
Yes, the University of Colorado has won one national championship and that was in 1990. That was a "split" year. Georgia Tech got the other one. That was also the year of the infamous "fifth down" the buffs were given by a mistaken officiating crew that kept a drive alive and enabled the buffs to "beat" Missouri.
