The National College Football Championships have been held in some form since 1869. In that time, the championship team has been determined in a number of ways. Officially, Yale University has won the most national championships in college football, at 27 in total. The university football team, called the Yale Bulldogs, has been in existence since 1872. The team mascot, named Handsome Dan, is a live bulldog, and it was the first live college mascot in America.
