The Ohio State Buckeyes now have sole possession of the longest win streak in the country at 23 games after defeating Illinois 28-3. Before yesterday afternoon, however, there was another team at the top of the board sharing that same record.
The Harvard Crimson are one of the best teams in the FCS that isn’t allowed to compete for a national championship. The team finished the 2013 season on a four-game streak that stretched through the 2014 season.
Yesterday, they put their 22-game streak and 8-0 record on the line against Penn. The Quakers pulled off a big upset, beating the Crimson 35-25 after blowing a 15 point lead and letting them take a 25-21 lead into halftime.
The Crimson’s last loss came to Princeton in 2013, a season where the team went 9-1. The team has only lost three games since November 10, 2012, two of those to the Quakers.
For Penn, they have made a bit of history this year as well. They opened the year with an upset of then-fourth ranked Villanova and the Crimson was ranked twelfth Saturday, meaning they have beaten two FCS Top 25 teams for the first time in team history.
