Boise State One Of 10 Schools In History

Boise State has joined the all-time elite schools in college football history. The Broncos are now one of just ten schools since 1869 to win eight or more games in every year of a decade.

Boise State has once again made history.  

The team that somehow isn't good enough to put into a national championship game is nonetheless rewriting the history books.  With its 45-7 win over San Jose State Saturday, Boise State became just the tenth school in college football history to win eight games in each year of a decade.  It was only the 13th time ever that the feat has been accomplished.  

The nine elite schools to accomplish this remarkable feat are Nebraska in the 70's, 80's and 90's, Michigan in the 70's and 90's, Pennsylvania and Princeton in the 1890's, BYU in the 1980's, Florida , Florida State and Tennessee in the 90's and Texas this decade.  

And now Boise State .  

Oklahoma , Georgia , LSU and Virginia Tech are also in line to achieve eight wins each year of this decade if they can put eight wins together this year.  

Boise State finished the year 2000 with a 10-2 record, defeating UTEP in the Humanitarian Bowl and ended 2001 with an 8-4 mark.  They were 12-1 in 2002 (again winning the Humanitarian Bowl over Iowa State ), 13-1 in 2003, defeating TCU in the Fort Worth Bowl and 11-1 in 2004.  The Broncos finished 9-4 in 2005, 13-0 in 2006 and 10-3 last season.   The Broncos were 10-3 in 2007 and 12-1 last season.   

This feat that the Broncos are chasing has not been accomplished by USC , Oklahoma, Georgia , Ohio State , Penn State or Notre Dame.  As mentioned above, Oklahoma and Georgia have a chance this decade.  

The following is a list of all the teams in the history of college football that are in the ballpark of Boise State's performance of eight-win seasons in a decade.  Schools that have been successful this decade are also shown.
