Notes[edit]

  1. ^ A running total of the number of head coaches, with coaches who served separate tenures being counted only once. Interim head coaches are represented with "Int" and are not counted in the running total. "—" indicates the team played but either without a coach or no coach is on record. "X" indicates an interim year without play.
  2. ^ Virginia Tech did not join a conference until 1920, and was not a member of a conference from 1965 to 1990.
  3. ^ Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[1]
  4. ^ When computing the win–loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.[2]
  5. ^ Although the first Rose Bowl Game was played in 1902, it has been continuously played since the 1916 game, and is recognized as the oldest bowl game by the NCAA. "—" indicates any season prior to 1916 when postseason games were not played.[3]
