The Southern Methodist University (SMU) Mustangs football program claims three public titles in the almost 100 years that the game has been played at the school in the Dallas, Texas region.

With regards to the most significant level of school football the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which has competitions and officially perceives a public hero for each and every other school sport, has ceased from formally delegated a school football public champ at the most significant level. Preceding 2006 the most significant level of school football was called Division 1-A. Since 2006 the term Division 1-A has been supplanted with Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Concerning both Division 1-An and all the more as of late Division I FBS the NCAA just expresses that "various surveying associations give a last positioning." In spite of the way that the NCAA puts together a competition and articulating an inevitable public boss at the Division-II and Division-III degrees of school football the administering collection of school football has decided to go without formally announcing a FBS (previously Division-IA) public hero. In light of this reality various schools have decided to guarantee public titles for recorded seasons regardless of agreement assessments in actuality. In 1935 the SMU football program went 12-1 in a season that was finished up with a bowl triumph in the wake of beating Stanford 7-0 in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Three unique associations pronounced the SMU group drove by lead trainer Madison Bell as the best in the country. Those three associations were (1) Dickinson, (2) Houlgate System, and (3) Sagarin Ratings.โน๊ตบุ๊ค 2021 In 1981 the Dallas based foundation of higher learning asserted a second public title after a 10-1 season under mentor Ron Meyer where the Mustangs didn't close their season with a bowl game. The position of safety association that announced SMU the best school football crew in the nation after that season was the generally secret gathering called the National Championship Foundation. In 1982 Bobby Collins trained the SMU Mustangs to a 11-0-1 record throughout a season that finished up with an exciting 7-3 Cotton Bowl victor over the University of Pittsburgh. Future NFL Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson drove the crew that completed second in the AP and Coaches Polls. Despite the fact that Penn State was broadly acknowledged as the public boss with a considerably more troublesome timetable than SMU the Penn State program got done with a 11-1 record. The solitary misfortune to then number four positioned University of Alabama gave an association that considers itself the Helms Athletic Foundation adequate motivation to pronounce SMU the public boss on the grounds that the Mustangs got done with one tie and no misfortunes while Penn State had one misfortune in week five of the 1982 season.
