Team No. Years Oklahoma 47 1953-57 Washington 39 1908-14 Yale 37 1890-93 Yale 37 1887-89 Toledo 35 1969-71 Pennsylvania 34 1894-96 Miami (Fla.) 34 2000-02 Southern Cal 33 2003-05 Oklahoma 31 1948-50 Pittsburgh 31 1914-18 Pennsylvania 31 1896-98 Texas 30 1968-70

Answer

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.

Now 1920-30 seems to barely fit into the term "modern day", but by that time most of today's college teams had been formed and th game, itself, had taken the basic shape it has today. Many of the leagues were formed by then, Knute Rockne and Notre dame had introduced the forward pass to the football world and some of the early immortal teams and players existed.

The first division of schools was basically major and small college teams, Division 1-A was introduced more recently, but I do not know when. It happened since 1950.

But, technically, the rankings for the teams listed above in the 1-A category for modern day records would be:

1. Oklahoma 47 (1953-1957);

2. Toledo 35 (1969-1971);

3. Miami (FL) 34 (2000-2002);

4. USC (So. Cal) 33 (2003-2005);

5. Oklahoma 31 (1948-1950);

6. Texas 30 (1968-1970)

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.

All-time record (home winning streak):The Miami Hurricanes proudly boast an impressive 58-game winning streak at home. The streak spanned nine seasons and has remained uncontested since its inclusion into the NCAA record books.Note: The NCAA observes "home winning streaks" as a particular team's unbroken series of winning on that particular team's home field. 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. In accordance with this standard, the NCAA recognizes the Miami Hurricanes as possessor of such a record, in consideration of three Orange Bowl victories, which sets the record of home winning streaks at 58.(Current as of Sep 25, 2011)Current record (home winning streak):Oklahoma just extended their lead to 38-straight wins at home with a 38-28 victory over Missouri (Sep 24, 2011).As one of the best home-field advantages in college football, the Oklahoma Sooners enjoy an all-time record of 357-78-15 (.809) at home.Please refer to note below.Note: The NCAA observes "home winning streaks" as a particular team's unbroken series of winning on that particular team's home field. 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. In accordance with this standard, the NCAA recognizes the Miami Hurricanes as possessor of such a record, in consideration of three Orange Bowl victories, which sets the record of home winning streaks at 58. 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)

what causes black streaks on thumbnail

User Avatar

Yes, and no. It can be used as a verb (the cat streaks across the lawn) or it can be a noun ( I have blonde streaks in my hair). either way is correct

Kill streaks have been changed to score streaks in Black Ops 2. You can use score streaks depending on how much score you have instead of getting straight kills.
