Clemson holds the record for the longest active win streak in college football, but USF has now gone the most days (454) since its last loss. SPECIAL TO THE ORACLE/ DPDSDOGS.COM

Not only was Iowa State’s 38-31 win over No. 3 Oklahoma the biggest upset of Week 6 in college football, it gave USF a new distinction.

Already holding the active record for most consecutive games with 30-plus points scored with 22, the Sooners' loss meant that the Bulls now have gone longer without a loss than any other team in the nation.

Before losing to Iowa State on Saturday, Oklahoma held a nation-best win streak at 14 games with its last loss coming against Ohio State in September of 2016.

The No. 18 Bulls, who have won a program-record 10 games in a row, haven’t lost since Temple beat them 46-30 on Oct. 21 2016, now giving them the record.

Clemson, which won three postseason games last season, now holds the title for most wins in a row with 11 after the Sooners' loss, but its last loss came Nov. 16, 2016 — making USF’s streak of not losing longer by nearly a month.

The next longest winning streak after USF and Clemson —  in time passed since last loss as well — is San Diego State, which hasn’t lost a game since Nov. 26 2016. Since falling to Colorado State in their last loss, the Aztecs have won eight straight games and are currently ranked one spot below the Bulls in the AP Top 25 at No. 19.
