Streaks a Week 4 themeSunday, September 25, 2011
The fourth week of the college football season was marked by streaks – both winning and losing. Also, starting 4-0 is nice. But it is hard to believe one major program last won its first four games when Harry Truman was in office. Here is a glimpse at the past week By The Numbers.
38: Consecutive home wins by Oklahoma following its 38-28 victory over Missouri. The last time the Sooners lost at Owen Field was a 17-10 setback at the hands of TCU on Sept. 3, 2005.
72: Victories – against TWO defeats -- at Owen Field by Bob Stoops since he took over as OU head coach in 1999. The only other defeat was by a 16-13 count to Oklahoma State on Nov. 24, 2001.
21: Consecutive home wins by TCU after its 55-13 win over Portland State, a Mountain West Conference record.
1: The number of all-time victories against ACC opponents by Temple after its 38-7 demolition of Maryland. The Owls lost the previous 12.
19: Consecutive road losses by Colorado after its 37-17 setback at Ohio State. The Buffs’ last road win was at Texas Tech four seasons ago.
60: Years since Illinois was last 4-0. The 1951 Fighting Illini capped a 9-0-1 campaign by routing Stanford in the Rose Bowl. It was their last undefeated season.
201:40: Minutes and seconds before Penn State had its first touchdown pass of the season. Matt McGloin connected with Joe Suhey 8:19 into the second quarter of Saturday’s 34-6 win over visiting Eastern Michigan.
13: Touchdown passes by Baylor's Robert Griffin this season.
12: Incompletions thrown by Griffin this season.
16: Receptions by Rutgers’ Mohammed Sanu in a 38-26 win over Ohio to set school and Big East records. Sanu had the previous school record of 13 receptions, which he established the game before.
84: Distance of one of the two TD runs by Florida’s Jeff Demps in a 48-10 rout of Kentucky.
96: Demps’ run was the longest by a Gator since Emmitt Smith took one 96 yards against Mississippi State in 1988.
25: Straight victories by Florida over the Wildcats.
