Here's how the AP formed these rankings:

To determine the all-time Top 25, the AP formula counted poll appearances (one point) to mark consistency, No. 1 rankings (one point) to acknowledge elite programs and gave a bonus for AP championships (10 points).

Ohio State is the AP's all-time No. 1, and is one of six Big Ten teams ranked ahead of Iowa, joining Nebraska, Michigan, Penn State, Michigan State and Wisconsin. Columbia, William and Mary, Nevada and Bowling Green are tied for last in the all-time top 100.

Iowa State finished at No. 83.
