Yale is not part Division 1a
AnswerIn the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there were no divisions at all. At that time, Yale was on the same level as all other teams. Perhaps, the division here should be from the point the collegiate divisions were put in place, or from date that would be fitting to indicate "modern day" college football and that could go back some 80 to 90 years, say 1920.

as of 12/02/2010, Kansas has the longest current home winning streak at 64 games. Current (prior to KU's win against UCLA as of this writing) can be found at http://web1.ncaa.org/stats/StatsSrv/rankings?sportCode=MBB&doWhat=showstreaks&division=1 For all-time streaks, here is a quasi answer, but Kentucky IMHO should have an asterisk as they have a history of being less than honorable during these years. http://www.mikebond.org/2009/11/21/top-ten-ncaa-college-basketball-home-winning-streaks/
easy, pete Carroll (USC) would grab the #1 spot, 6 straight BCS bowl games, 3 of them National championships, winning 2 of them. the best in college football right now. 2nd probably Jim tressle, (Ohio State) has won 12 "Coach of the Year" awards, 4 Division I-AA National Championships and 1 Division I-A National Championship. Since taking over at Ohio State in 2001, Tressel was 62-14 coming into the 2007 season with 4 BCS Bowl appearances in 6 seasons @ OSU. #3, Bob Stoops at Oklahoma. Basicly has turned that team into a national powerhouse every year he has been there. I would also have to include Larry Kehre, Mount Union College. The winniest football coach in college football history with a winning percentage of .927. Coach Larry Kehres has 10 NCAA Division III Championships and the two longest winning streaks in NCAA football history with 54 wins and then after one lost he has a 55 game winning streak. Mount Union Purple Raiders also holds the record for most consecutive regular season victories, winning 110 games between 1994-2005. Under his coaching staff, his football squads have only lost 22 games and tied three times and that gives him a record of 296-22-3.

With regards to winning streaks, to include home winning streaks, the NCAA does not differentiate a regular season loss from a postseason loss; moreover, the NCAA does not discriminate a regular season win from a postseason win.

Moreover, these specifications apply to Boise State's "regular season home winning streak" as well. The NCAA does not recognize "regular season" home winning streaks.Had the inquirer asked about the longest "regular season" home winning streaks, a mention of Boise State would be prudent. In this case, however, a distinction between such variables is unnecessary. If one wants to mention Boise State's "regular season" home winning streaks, why not mention the longest home winning streaks for games played at night? How about we include the longest home winning streaks for teams that played before a sellout crowd? Can we not just observe an objective standard and answer in accordance with that standard?(Current as of Sep 25, 2011)
