Two teams finished the 2013 season without a win
The nation spent most of this season worrying about the possibility of having too many undefeated teams, and we in this space devoted much of that same time pondering whether or not we were headed towards an unprecedented number of winless seasons. In both cases, things worked themselves out.
Southern Miss and Hawaii won their first games on the season's final Saturday, a 62-27 blowout of UAB for the Golden Eagles and a 49-42 shootout win over Army for the Warriors. Congratulations are in order to both.
It just serves a reminder that - ridiculous as it seems - proves mathematically true every season: in major college football, it's harder to win zero games than to win every game.
Miami, Ohio (0-12) - The RedHawks lost to Ball State 55-14 on Friday, extending their losing skid to a now FBS-longest 16 games. But that's in the past now. The program can now turn its full attention to its ongoing coaching search and creating a new chapter in Miami (Ohio) football history.
Georgia State (0-12) - If there's any consolation for Georgia State, it's that they've got the right guy for the job. After finishing 0-12 and then 1-10 in his first two seasons at Indiana State, Trent Miles went 19-14 in his final three years at the school before departing for Atlanta. The bad news? Georgia State has now seen its win total drop in each season since its 2010 debut: from six to three to one to zero.
