I was curious if anyone could verify what is the longest home win streak at Michigan Stadium? I found a streak that started in 1969 with Purdue and ended in 1973 with the tie to Ohio State, totaling 28 consecutive wins. Do ties break a winning streak? Just curious, if anyone has some insight it would be much appreciated.
Longest home win streak?
But UM won 50 games straight at home between 1901-1907...
1969 June – Evidence that turf required less maintenance than grass and could
withstand any type of weather led the Regents of the University of Michigan to
approve artificial turf for use at Michigan Stadium. At a cost of $250,000,
88,285 feet of Tartan Turf is installed in July.
September 20 – The Wolverines break in the newly installed Tartan Turf with a
42-14 defeat of Vanderbilt.
October 4 – The Wolverines lose at home to Missouri, 40-17. Michigan would
not lose another game at home until Nov. 22, 1975, a streak of 41 games.
