How do the last 10 college football national champions stack up in a power ranking?

The first College Football Playoff National Champion has now been crowned, and the Ohio State Buckeyes took care of business to take home the trophy.

Like most champions, the Buckeyes had their flaws as well as some very strong points. Point to one Cardale Jones for the latter.

But how do this year's Buckeyes compare to the national champions for the last 10 years? I broke down all of them, looked at their schedules, their weaknesses and their strengths, and ranked them from 1-10.

Factors taken into consideration were strength of schedule, improvement through the season, non-conference schedules and Top 25 teams played in the regular season and conference championship games.

Obviously, these teams are all champions, and are all very good football teams, so these rankings aren't a way of saying that any of them are "bad teams", but rather my thoughts on how they rank against each other. Honestly, the difference between some of them is absolutely infinitesimal.
