Here are the top 10 longest winning streaks in men’s college basketball history.

John Wooden‘s UCLA Bruins of the late 1960s and early 1970s dominate. They appear three times and hold the all-time, and probably unbreakable,  record  – 88 games won in a row! No one even comes close to that today.

The most recent chartbusting streak was put on by Jerry Tarkanian‘s Runnin’ Rebels back over 20 years ago, in 1990-91.
