UMass now has a winning streak that is longer than Alabama’s.


Alabama may be a college football dynasty, but the Minutemen of UMass currently have the upper hand on the Crimson Tide in at least one category.Prior to Saturday night, the Crimson Tide of Alabama appeared untouchable in a battle versus Texas A&M. They’d won 19 games in a row as a program, 100 games in a row against unranked opponents, and Nick Saban had never lost against a former assistant in 24 tries.

All of those streaks, however, are now over. The Tide traveled to Kyle Field, were punched in the mouth, attempted to rally, but fell short due to a last-second field goal by the Aggies.

Taking an upset loss and having those streaks stop is bad enough for a team that was ranked No. 1 in college football previous to this game. But now, even the lowly UMass Minutemen, who had gone a combined 1-20 in the previous three seasons, had an advantage over them.

Alabama no longer has a winning streak, so UMass is currently ahead of them in that category.

The Minutemen now have a longer winning run than one of the best dynasties in recent college football history and the defending national champs, according to their 27-13 victory over UConn on Saturday.

Those bragging rights, though, are likely to be fleeting. This week, the Minutemen will face another one of the poorest teams in college football. Even if Alabama has more SEC games ahead of them, they have a much better chance of winning than UMass.

Allow UMass to air their grievances for a week. They are better than Alabama, at least in terms of recent performance as measured by results.
