3. University of Miami's great football run

One national title. One penalty flag in the championship game from a second. Twenty-three consecutive wins. Five first-round picks each season. Butch Davis set up the run and Larry Coker took over in 2001 with a game at Penn State. Miami led at half, 30-0. It beat Nebraska for the title that year and had <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="OREDU000048" title="The Ohio State University" href="/topic/education/colleges-universities/the-ohio-state-university-OREDU000048.topic">Ohio State</a> on the ropes for a second straight title before a late pass-interference flag was thrown. Tweet. That signaled the end of one of college football’s great runs.
