College football is one of the most challenging and when a team has a winning streak at home that spans many seasons, you can bet their fans are extra excited for game day. Many teams have gone on impressive streaks of beating visiting teams over the years. The dynamics of a college stadium have a lot to do with it. Home team players know the field and they're pumped to play before the hometown crowd. Fans show up in the many thousands to cheer on their team. It can get so loud in some stadiums on a Saturday that the opposing team can't call a decent play. The psychology of home field advantage is a big factor. Fourteen teams have reeled off long unbeaten stretches at home over the years, all of them spanning several years. The Longest Home Winning Streaks Miami and Alabama were not the only teams to win every home game for more than a few years. Many great players kept their school's game day pride alive and played a role in these longest home winning streaks in college football history. Home Win Streak Years Miami (Florida) Hurricanes 58 games 1985-1994 Alabama Crimson Tide 57 games 1963-1982 Harvard Crimson 57 games 1963-1982 Michigan Wolverines 50 games 1901-1907 Nebraska Cornhuskers 47 games 1991-1998 Washington Huskies 44 games 1908-1917 Texas Longhorns 42 games 1968-1976 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 40 games 1907-1918 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 38 games 1919-1927 Florida State Seminoles 37 games 1992-2001 Yale Bulldogs 37 games 1904-1908 Yale Bulldogs 37 games 1900-1903 Marshall Thundering Herd 33 games 1995-2000 Nebraska Cornhuskers 33 games 1901-1906 Miami Wins 58 in a Row at Home In the 1980s and early 90s, the University of Miami boasted the best program in college football. The Hurricanes were fast, mean, brash and—most importantly—utterly dominant. Nowhere were the 'Canes more dominant than at the Orange Bowl, the stadium they called home. Between October 12, 1985 and September 24, 1994, Miami won an astounding 58 straight games at home. This broke the record for the longest home winning streak previously held by Alabama. The Crimson Tide won 57 straight at home. The 'Canes won three national titles during this stretch. Alabama Chalks Up 57 Wins The Crimson Tide won every one of its home games—57 in all—beginning on October 26, 1963. Their streak ended one short of Miami's record with a 38-29 loss to Southern Miss on November 13, 1982. Notably, the loss was Coach Bear Bryant's last home game with the team. A Touchdown Away From an Unbeatable Streak The Hurricanes may hold the title for the most home wins, but the Yale Bulldogs were just a few points away from the ultimate home win streak. At the dawn of the 20th century, the Bulldogs were unbeatable at home. They won every home game from 1900 through 1908 with the exception of one. That loss came on November 14, 1903, when Princeton came to visit. The final score was 6-11, won on a 42-yard field goal by Princeton's John DeWitt to break a tie game. Field goals were five points in college ball back in those days. Had it not been for that single loss, Yale's home win streak would have been 74 games rather than the consecutive 37 games apiece found in the record books—the loss came squarely in the middle of those two stretches. That really would have been an unbeaten streak. Alabama vs. Auburn: Get the Facts on the Iron Bowl Which College Team Has the Longest Losing Streak on Record?
