No. 21 Florida set an NCAA football record Saturday by scoring in its 366th consecutive game despite losing to LSU, 17-16.

The Wolverines played 365 games over 30 years without being shut out. Michigan’s streak ended with a 31-0 loss at Notre Dame on Sept. 6, 2014.
Florida hasn’t been shut out since a 16-0 home loss to Auburn on Oct. 29, 1988.

These days, Schembechler’s former quarterback, Harbaugh, has the walls papered Nike NFL Jerseys Size Chart with Go Blue-friendly artwork.
