Boise State 4th All-Time For Wins In A Decade

Boise State and Oklahoma are still tied for the most wins this decade. The Broncos and Sooners both won last weekend for their 108th win since 2000. They tie the famous Nebraska teams of the 1990's for fourth place in history. Florida State holds the modern record with 109 wins from 1990-1999.

With Boise State's 63-25 win over Idaho and Oklahoma's victory over Texas A & M, the Broncos and Sooners tied Nebraska for the fourth most wins in a decade in college football history.

Oklahoma began the season with 102 wins while Boise State had 98.  But the Broncos have caught them with an unbeaten 10-0 season to date, while Oklahoma has won six of ten.  Oklahoma is currently 108-23 this decade while Boise State is 108-17.  The famous Nebraska teams of the 1990's were 108-16-1.

Florida State (also in the 1990's) holds the modern record of 109 wins with 13 losses and a tie.  Two early college football teams from the 1890's, Pennsylvania (124 wins) and Yale (116 wins) hold the #1 and #2 spots.

Boise State began the decade with a 10-2 season, and were 8-4 in 2001 with a victory over #8 Fresno State.  The Broncos were 12-1 and 13-1, respectively in 2002 and 2003, and began their streak of three unbeaten seasons in five years with an 11-0 regular season in 2004.  Boise State lost to #7 Louisville in the 2004 Liberty Bowl.  The Broncos were 9-4 in Coach Dan Hawkins' last year but capped a perfect 13-0 season in 2006 with a Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma.  Boise State finished 10-3 in 2007 and 12-1 last season.

The Broncos have a minimum of three games remaining while Oklahoma has two plus a likely bowl game.  If Boise State is fortunate enough to win their remaining games plus be invited to a bowl game that they can win, the Broncos would hold the modern record by themselves.
