Boise State Joins Elite Group Of 48 Teams

With their 45-21 win over Fresno State, Boise State added its name to an elite group of 48 schools in college football history. The Broncos won nine or more games for the sixth time this decade, a feat only 47 other teams have accomplished since college football began in 1869.

Only 18 schools in college football history have won nine or more games eight years in a decade.  With three years of nine or more wins, Boise State can become the 19th.  Texas achieved their seventh season this decade of nine or more wins with their victory this past weekend.  Miami of Florida can also accomplish the feat as they have six years of nine or more wins this decade.  Auburn, Louisville and Michigan have already won nine games or more five times in the current decade.  The Cardinals can make it six years with one more win this season.  Georgia and LSU can do it if they win nine or more games this season and the remaining three years this decade.


Just twelve teams in history have won nine or more games in nine out of the ten years in a decade.  Nebraska accomplished this incredible feat in three different decades (the 70's, 80's and 90's).  Yale recorded nine or more wins in nine seasons in both the 1880's and 1890's.  Other teams to do it are Pennsylvania and Princeton in the 1890's, Arkansas and Oklahoma in the 70's and Florida, Penn State and Tennessee in the 90's.  


Here are those schools that finished a decade with at least six seasons of nine or more wins.  Successful teams of the current decade are also listed.
