NCAAF All-Time Winning Percentage Boils Down to 2-Way Race Between Michigan & Ohio State After Boise State Loss
By Zach Brunner
Heading into the college football bowl season, the battle for the best all-time winning percentage was a close race between Boise State, Ohio State and Michigan.
But following Boise State's loss in the Las Vegas Bowl, either Michigan or Ohio State could soon stand alone atop the record books.
Boise State was in the lead prior to the loss, but the Broncos now own a 460-169-2 (W-L-D) record. Tied with a .730 winning percentage, both Ohio State and Michigan now have the chance to end the season with the best winning percentage in NCAA history.
Michigan is playing in the Citrus Bowl against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Currently 7-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, Michigan needs a win if the Wolverines hope to finish with the best winning percentage of all time.
Michigan is currently 962-345-36, and with a win, and an Ohio State loss, the Wolverines would finish the season with the best winning percentage in NCAA history.
Meanwhile, Ohio State has a rare opportunity here, as the Buckeyes can tally on two more wins in the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes are 2-point underdogs against the Clemson Tigers in the Fiesta Bowl, but currently sitting at 924-325-53, Ohio State can finish with the best winning percentage ever with a Michigan loss, or if OSU wins it all.
Whether or not Michigan and Ohio State can capitalize remains to be seen, but Boise State's loss opened the door for a new school to hold the NCAA's best all-time winning percentage.
