Alabama extends unbelievable streak, longest for any FBS team since 1950
Alabama has put up some memorable numbers during the Nick Saban era, but one may stand out as much as any other.
Alabama knocked off Southern Miss 63-14 and now hasn’t trailed at any point in its last 53 quarters of play, which is the longest streak for any FBS team since 1950, according to Brad Edwards.
Some other notable numbers for the Crimson Tide include: 100th consecutive win against an unranked opponent, which no other Division I program has accomplished in the AP Poll era. Surpassed 30 points for the 30th consecutive game, one shy of UCF’s record, which came during the 2017-19 seasons.
Alabama returns to action next week against Ole Miss, which was off on Saturday.
