    Clemson (15-0), NDSU (15-0), Valdosta State (14-0, DII), Mary Hardin-Baylor (15-0, DIII), Morningside (15-0, NAIA)

    And the last time that happened was 2013:
    Florida State (14-0), NDSU (15-0), Northwest Missouri State (15-0, DII), Wisconsin-Whitewater (15-0, DIII), Grand View (14-0, NAIA)

    Of course going 15-0 is pretty rare in the FBS because you have to win your regular season, your conference championship game, the semifinal game, and the FBS championship game, and obviously it's only been recently that some of those have happened. Many conference championship games are a relatively new thing, and you've only had the 4-team playoff for a few years too.

    In D2, NWMSU had back-to-back 15-0 seasons in 2015 and 2016.

    This year, Ferris State had the chance to finish 16-0 but lost in the title game to Valdosta State.

    I wonder how many times an FBS, FCS, DII, DIII, or NAIA team has spoiled "5-division-perfection". I am not going to do the research, but would be curious.

    Everyone knows Dabo wasn't talking about FCS, D2, D3, NAIA, or NCCAA or even the pre-NCAA era.

    Interestingly, it is possible for an FCS champion to actually go 17-0 (maybe even 18-0 if they play Hawaii). It would require a team going 12-0 and not being seeded but running the table.
    How pissed would your fanbase be if you went undefeated with an FBS win over Hawaii and couldn't even get an 8 seed? Interesting hypothetical though.

    In theory, could be a team like San Diego, Kennesaw St or Colgate .. San Diego being the most likely.
