Sport: College Football
Forgettable stat: In 1991, Prairie View was outscored 617-48, or an average score of 56-4.
Did you know: This is the longest football losing streak in NCAA history.
Bottom line: Due to financial issues, Prairie View shut down its football program in 1989, but it returned two years later. However, there was no scholarship fund for the team, and thus no scholarships.
The rest of the FCS, then known as Division I-AA, awarded partial scholarships to its athletes, so Prairie View was facing an uphill battle when they took the field in 1991.
The Panthers went parts of nine seasons without winning a game and nearly doubled the previous longest losing streak of 44 games held by Columbia.
Prairie View A&M's record losing streak was part of an era in which it went 31 seasons without posting a winning record.
