Cougar Kickoff Countdown: 61 Days

The Cougars were undoubtedly their best from the late 1970's to the mid-1980's, but that was only part of their longest streak of scoring points in a game.


The BYU Cougars' longest streak of scoring points in a game is 362 games, extending from 1975 to 2003. The streak is book ended by a 0-20 shutout to Arizona State September 20, 1975, and a 0-3 shutout to the University of Utah November 22, 2003. During those 28 years, the Cougars won 259 games, lost 101 games, and tied 2 games (71.5 percent win percentage). They also won 7 bowl games, the 1984 National Championship, 1990 Heisman Trophy, 7 Sammy Baugh Trophies, Doak Walker Award, 2 Outland Trophies, 4 Davey O'Brien Awards, and 2 Coach of the Year Awards.

Despite some close calls, the Cougars have not been shut out since the 2003 Utah game. Their streak now stands at 127 straight games with points scored including 87 wins and 40 losses (69 percent win percentage). The Cougars have also won 5 bowl games during the last 10 years.
