Top College NCAA Teams This Far
By Lucila Bilenca - May 8, 2023

The NCAA is one of the most well-known sports organizations in the world, and they’ve been around for nearly 100 years. They have rules and regulations that all teams must follow, and they oversee all championship games. The University of Virginia has won more games than any other team in college football history. That’s right—they’ve won 34 games since their first win way back in 1894. Florida State University has only lost one game in its history. That’s what we call a streak! They lost only one game between 1965 and 2005.
