Are there any players who have won an NCAA football championship while playing for two different teams?

  • As your answer implies, this is difficult to answer since NCAA football championships are not well-defined (unless you are referring to the actual NCAA Football Championship). – Michael Myers Mar 31 '15 at 22:05

I found this answer while researching the basketball version of this question.

J.T. White won a football championship at Ohio State in 1942 and then at Michigan in 1947.

This page says the following:

Q: What college football player won national championships with two different teams?

A: According to Kent Stephens, curator at the College Football Hall of Fame:

"If you regard Michigan as claiming a piece of the 1947 title then JT White played there and at Ohio State in 1942."

Wikipedia confirms that Ohio State shared the football national championship in 1942 and Michigan shared the football national championship in 1947. Wikipedia also confirms that JT White played football for Ohio State in 1942 and Michigan in 1947.

On 11th January 2016, Jake Coker won a National Championship at the University of Alabama. He was the backup quarterback for Florida State when they won the BCS National Championship in 2013, so he now has two championships from two different schools.

  • There is a referenced answer from over two years ago, naming another player who has done so. This answer is at best inaccurate, and without a source is virtually useless. – Nij May 4 '19 at 23:07
