Boise State Football Ties Two Modern Records

Boise State's win last night over Utah State not only gave the Broncos an 11-0 mark this season, but also entered them into the history books. Boise State tied modern records for the most wins in an eight-year period as well as most wins in a decade. It has been 109 years since a college football team did better.

Boise State's 52-21 win over Utah State last night enabled Boise State to tie modern college football records for the most wins in an eight-year period and most wins in a decade.  The Broncos are now 91-11 since 2002, tying Nebraska for the most wins in an eight-year period since 1898.  It has been 111 years since any college football team did better.  Nebraska's famous teams from 1993-2000 also had 91 wins.

Boise State also tentatively moved ahead of Oklahoma in the battle for most wins this decade and tied Florida State (1990's) for the modern record for wins in a decade with 109.  Two early college football teams from the 1890's, Pennsylvania (124 wins) and Yale (116 wins) hold the #1 and #2 spots.  Oklahoma began the season with 102 wins while Boise State had 98.  But the Broncos have caught them with an unbeaten 11-0 season to date, while Oklahoma has won six of ten.  Oklahoma is currently 108-23 this decade while Boise State is 109-17.  The famous Nebraska teams of the 1990's were 108-16-1.

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.
