Broncos--16th Longest Streak Of 8-Win Seasons

Boise State has stretched its streak of eight-win seasons to 11. The Broncos have won eight or more games every year since 1999.

With Boise State 's 45-7 win over San Jose State Saturday, the Broncos won their eighth game of the season against no losses.  That's the 11th straight year that Boise State has won at least eight games.  The Broncos are tied for the 16th-longest streak in college football history and the 12th best in the last 70 years.  Boise State moved ahead of streaks by USC, Notre Dame and Oklahoma

Nebraska is the runaway record holder with 33 consecutive seasons of eight or more wins.  The Cornhuskers accomplished their amazing run from 1969-2001.  Michigan recorded eight or more wins from 1985-2004 for 20 straight seasons, while Princeton (1888-1906) and Florida State (1987-2005) are tied with 19 straight years.  

Boise State can move into the all-time top 15 with one more season of eight or more wins.  If the Broncos can continue their record of success, they will rank in the top ten of all-time in three more years.
