With Liberty of Madera Ranchos in the CIF Central Section losing last week and seeing its winning streak end at 22 games, here’s an updated look at the five teams that currently have the longest active football winning streaks in the state.
(Through games of Saturday, Oct. 3)
22 – Folsom
The Bulldogs, who were 16-0 last season, now have the longest current win streak to go with the longest involving regular season games. Their last loss was to De La Salle in the 2013 CIF NorCal Open Division bowl game. Their last regular season loss was in Week 9 tof the 2011 season to Pleasant Grove. Folsom won the next week vs. Oak Ridge and has had three straight 10-0 regular seasons since then for a current regular season streak of 37.
18 – Mission Viejo
After starting 0-2 last season, the Diablos won 12 in a row and won the CIF Southern Section West Valley Division title. Looking down the road, if Folsom and Mission were both to win out, they could potentially face off in the CIF D1AA state bowl final. At that point, Folsom would be on a 31-game win streak and the Diablos would be sitting at 27.
17 – McClymonds (Oakland)
This total is for on-the-field results only. Mack does have forfeit losses from last season relating to the games that former QB Kevin Davidson played in early on. On the field, though, the Warriors were 12-0 and won their first five games this season.
12 – Palm Springs
The Aztecs won their final seven games last season in winning the CIFSS Eastern Division crown. They’ve started 5-0 for 2015.
10 – Bear River (Lake of the Pines)
After notching impressive wins in the last two weeks vs. Escalon and Sutter, the Bruins’ win streak has reached double figures. They won their final five games of last season en route to the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division V crown.
