- Bobby Bowden, 346, – Florida State
For years, Bowden and Paterno went back and forth for most wins by a college coach. Bowden has actually won 357 games, but the NCAA adjusted his win total to 346 as part of punishment for a university student-athlete academic scandal. He led Florida State from 1976 through 2010, at which time he retired. He led the Seminoles to two National Championships in 1993 and 1999. He also won 12 ACC conference titles and 21 bowl games.
