FIU snaps nation’s longest losing streak, defeats North Texas 38-19

Their streak ends at 23 games. From the Miami Herald-

FIU ends 23-game losing streak

Now that is how you close out college football at the Orange Bowl.

Playing in the historic stadium’s final college football game, Florida International used a precise passing game, a stifling defense and a surge of emotion to beat North Texas 38-19 and end the nation’s longest losing streak at 23 games.

Congratulations to the Golden Panthers. I’m sure everyone is relieved the streak is over.

There will be a few more football games played at the Orange Bowl. Including a state high school football playoff game next Friday involving my alma mata, Deerfield Beach. Do I want to see my first HS game in almost 25 years?(I graduated HS in 79, but attended a few games up till 1983)

Note- I just found out one of Deerfield’s most noted alumni is a pornographic actress. No mention of a blogger who gives out Knucklehead awards? Darn!

Now who has the longest losing streak in Division one football?

Southern Methodist, Idaho and Minnesota now share the nation’s longest losing streak at 10 games.

Get it into gear guys. Who wants to be known as the worst of the worst.
