Earlier today I posted an article on Bleacher Report, which lists the top 10 greatest victories in college football openers.

This was in response to Oklahoma State’s 84-0 victory over Savannah State last night.

Here are a few highlights from the article:

  • Oklahoma State’s 84 point win is the greatest margin of victory in major college football since 1951, when Alabama defeated Delta State (MS) 89-0.
  • In 1923, Dayton (OH) opened up their season with a 161-0 victory over Central Normal (IN). It’s the greatest margin of victory in an opener by any team in college football history.

Be sure to check out the article here.

  1. Hey Andrew, an idea for a future listing.

    How about the most points scored in game 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12…and all other after the 12th game?

  2. Not a bad idea, I just don’t think I’ll find the time to tackle it anytime soon.

  3. Just a thought! I know you’re busy with a number of on-going projects; please let me know if you every accomplish this.

    How about a list when a team scored 100+ points, the game number which this was accomplished.

    (I have such when a team scored their 500th-600th-700th-800th point; if you would like have to post.)
