Schools with most Top 10 wins in College Football Playoff era

To be the best, you have to beat the best. And, as tends to happen in college football, there are only a few teams that live in that rarefied air of consistent elite play.

The pool of dominant, title-worthy teams has grown even smaller since the introduction of the College Football Playoff. 

And with beating ranked teams a vital part of earning a spot in the final four, that metric has grown more important than ever.

Winning against highly-ranked teams isn't a guarantee that you'll make the playoff. 

But it doesn't hurt, either — there's at least a connection between winning those games and making the final four and winning the national championship.

Who are the best at beating other teams in the Top 10 of the football rankings? Let's take a look at the best of the best in the CFP era.
