The 2019-20 college football bowl season is officially underway, with both postseason records and streaks back on the line once again.

After we saw Florida State's all-time NCAA record for consecutive bowl game appearances come to an end at 36 straight upon missing a bowl game for the first time since 1982 last season, there's a new record holder on the block.

As we dive further into this year's bowl schedule, here's a look at the six longest active bowl streaks in college football, including each program's appearance in its respective 2019-20 bowl.
