Miami (OH) and the Longest Losing Streaks in College Football History (Division I)
The Miami (of Ohio) RedHawks are climbing the charts right now. But not in a good way.
They have lost 21 games in a row, placing them amongst the longest losing streaks in “Division I” college football history. By “Division I,” a term not really used until 1973, I mean the top league of its day.
Only one team has ever lost at least 30 in a row, and the RedHawks are still far away from them. There aren’t even enough games left in 2014 to catch ’em. If Miami loses out (8 more games this season), they’ll have a shot at the record in 2015.
And who holds that record?
Not very surprisingly, the same team with the most all-time losses in college football history.
The Northwestern Wildcats lost 34 in a row across four seasons, 1979 through 1982.
Below find every losing streak in college football history of 20 games or more.
What’s next for those RedHawks? Saturday, Oct 4th, against the 0-5 UMass Minutemen. Could this be the end of the streak?Follow @VinGetz
