The Illinois Fighting Illini football program represents the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in college football at the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) level. The Fighting Illini are a founding member of the Big Ten Conference and compete in its West Division. Illinois has been selected for national championship titles for their accomplishments in five seasons (1914, 1919, 1923, 1927, 1951) by NCAA-designated major selectors, often using mathematical algorithms. Illinois claims championships for all five years. Almost all college football title selections before 1928 were retrospective (selected years or decades later), and that is the case here. Only Dickinson in 1927 and Boand in 1951 were contemporaneous. Selection of consensus champions began in 1950. The Illinois Fighting Illini have never finished a season ranked No. 1 in either the AP Poll or Coaches’ Poll. Illinois has won 15 conference championships, eight outright and seven shared.
