JMU’s 51 16 triumph in the FCS Semifinals marked JMU’s program record 26th consecutive win, extending the CAA record and longest active streak in all of NCAA Division I. With Mary Hardin Baylor’s loss in the Division III title game, JMU took over as the win streak leader at every NCAA division.
JMU’s streak currently ranks second all time in FCS history. A has won 12 straight. As of Dec. 31, only two teams at the FBS level have won 10 or more in a row, as UCF has claimed 12 straight and FAU has won 10 consecutive. The Dukes have also won a CAA record 18 straight league games and became the league’s first team ever to go 8 0 back to back years.
