Broncos 4th All-Time For Wins In Eight Years

With USC losing over the weekend, Boise State is now in sole possession for the best record in the nation the last eight years. The Broncos tied Oklahoma (2000-2007) for fourth place all-time with their 90th win since 2002. Boise State can tie Nebraska (1993-2000) for the modern record of 91 wins with a win on the road this week. (Photo provided courtesty of Foto208.com--all rights reserved.)

Idaho scored a late touchdown, but Boise State was still able to beat the Vandals 63-25 Saturday afternoon in Boise.  Boise State's win, coupled with a USC loss over the weekend, enabled the Broncos to edge out in front of the Trojans for the most wins in the last eight years.

Boise State is 90-11 since 2002 while USC slips to 89-12.  Texas (87-13 this decade) is approaching their school record of 88 wins set last season.  Oklahoma won 90 games from 2000-2007 and is in fourth place all-time.  Nebraska holds the modern record with 91 wins from 1993-2000.  Boise State can tie those famous Nebraska teams with a win Friday night against Utah State.  They won't catch the top two, however.

Yale (106 wins from 1888-1895) and Pennsylvania (105 victories from 1891-1898) both played 15 and 16 games regularly during that period.

The teams are shown with their most number of wins in any period that overlapped.  No team can be listed for any years that overlap.
