List of 100 Point Games in College Football

In college football, games in which 100 points are scored by a single team are a rarity, especially since 1940; in lopsided games, several deterrents exist to prevent running up the score. Of current Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams, only Arizona, Bowling Green, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma and Tulsa have eclipsed 150 points in a game. Neglecting games in the early 1900s, the Houston Cougars are the only Division I FBS football team to score 100 points against another FBS team, against Tulsa in 1968. The Georgia Tech team is the only Division I team to record over 200 points in one game, which occurred in 1916 when Tech beat Cumberland 222–0. King College (TN) scored 206 points against Lenoir in 1922.

On September 25, 1884, Yale defeated Dartmouth 113–0, becoming not only the first game where one team scored over 100 points but also first time one team scored over 100 points and the opposing team scored zero points. The next week, Princeton outscored Lafayette by 140 to 0.

It is rare for a team to have scored in a game when the opponent scored over 100 points, but several cases exist. One is the Rice – Southern Methodist game of 1916 when SMU scored an early field goal but Rice "came back" to win 146–3.

Early records are often incomplete and sometimes contradictory. Scores listed in the table below have been confirmed in at least two sources except when there is a footnote to the score. A footnote by the date indicates a third reference source. The table includes not only scores from NCAA programs but also from those that compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and from games played before the advent of the NCAA or NAIA.

The November 23, 1968, meeting between the Houston Cougars and Tulsa Golden Hurricane holds the distinction of being the only football game between major football programs in the past 50 years in which a team scored 100 points. The 1968 Houston Cougars, led by coach Bill Yeoman, had introduced the veer offense two seasons prior and were known for scoring at will. Earlier in the 1968 season Houston played the University of Texas to a 20–20 tie, two weeks before the Longhorns began a nearly 3-year winning streak that included the 1969 National Championship.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, college, games, point, football and/or list:

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    A college of wit-crackers cannot flout me out of my humor. Dost thou think I care for a satire or an epigram?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    As long as lightly all their livelong sessions,
    Like a yardful of schoolboys out at recess
    Before their plays and games were organized,
    They yelling mix tag, hide-and-seek, hopscotch,
    And leapfrog in each other’s way all’s well.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    One point in my public life: I did all I could for the reform of the civil service, for the building up of the South, for a sound currency, etc., etc., but I never forgot my party.... I knew that all good measures would suffer if my Administration was followed by the defeat of my party. Result, a great victory in 1880. Executive and legislature both completely Republican.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
