The Oklahoma Sooner's 1947 season was wiped out by sanctions from the Big Eight Conference, which did not allow teams to play more than 12 games per year at the time. However, the Sooners still managed to win 10 games under head coach Bud Wilkinson. This makes them the only team in history to win at least 10 games in each of their first 11 seasons of existence.
In addition, they are also one of only three schools to have undefeated seasons (1946, 1950, 1955), along with Alabama and Notre Dame. The Oklahoma Sooner's record against rival Texas is the most recent loss on record for either school. The Sooners fell to Texas 50-7 in Austin on September 20, 2007.

The 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers set a record for the longest undefeated streak in NHL history, going 35 games without a loss. It is the longest unbeaten streak in NHL history and the longest in any professional sport in the United States. From Oct. 14, 1979, to Jan. 6, 1980, the Flyers went three months without losing, earning 25 victories, zero defeats, and ten ties. The previous record was held by the 1956 Montreal Canadiens, who started the season with 26 wins.
In that season, the Flyers were led by netminder Bernie Parent, who won the Lady Byng Trophy for best sportsmanship in hockey. He became the first goalie to win this award since it was introduced in 1963. Parent also had four shutouts and a 2.13 goals-against average.
The 1976-77 Boston Bruins had an even longer winning streak, starting with 10 games unbeaten and ending with no wins at all. They finished the season with a 0-10-0 record. This is the only year where having a perfect record did not guarantee a spot in the playoffs; instead, a random drawing determined which team would advance. The top seed had a bye into the second round while the No. 9 seed played the No. 8 seed in each conference after the regular season ended.
