Listed below are all of the college football games in which one of the participating teams posted a score of 100 points or more. In the last 50 years there have only been eight such games, but prior to that it wasn’t uncommon to see teams run up the score on weaker opponents.

This list is a work in progress. I’ve found 358 games that have involved a 100-point or more score, but I’m sure there are more to be found. If you have any additions please contact this site.

- Teams with the most 100-point games

Oklahoma has posted a 100-point or more score in eight games. Centre (KY) and Georgia Tech have posted 100-point scores in five games.

Georgia Tech (1918) and Indiana U. of Pennsylvania (1917) are the only schools that have ever posted three 100-point or more scores in the same season.

 

- Teams that have allowed the most 100-point games

Kentucky Wesleyan and Wesleyan (CT) have both been on the wrong end of a 100-point game five times.

Seventeen teams have surrounded a 100-point score twice in the same season. Dana College in Nebraska was the last team to do so in 1927.

 

- Seasons with the most 100-point games

There were 26 triple-digit scores in 1914 and in 1916.

There were five dates in college football that saw at least five 100-point games: 10/5/1912, 10/18/1913, 10/3/1914, 10/9/1920, and 10/15/1921.

Yale’s 113-0 victory over Dartmouth on October 25, 1884, marked the first time that a college football team scored 100 points or more in a game. Four days later Princeton defeated Lafayette (PA) 140-0.

  1. Another outstanding project that you have posted Andrew.

    Don’t you find it interesting: that with the high-power offenses in college football today, we seldom see a team top 100 points.

    Is that because of better defenses or the coaches are pulling back the troops?

    Here’s another interesting note of teams scoring 100+ Points

    In 1890, the Virginia Cavaliers became the only college football team that would scored and surrender over 100 points in the same season!

    In the second game of the season, Princeton pounded the Cavaliers, 115-0; while in their next game, Virginia regrouped; as the Cavaliers crushed Randolph Macon, 136-0.

  2. Thanks for the comments Tex. You always add great stats to the conversation. Great stuff on 1890 Virginia.

    I thought we might’ve seen a 100-point score in the Oklahoma St.-Savannah St. game last year.

    I think most coaches these days are just happy to get a win, and once that’s secured they pull back the troops in hopes of avoiding any injuries.
