Northwestern University Football Team results for 1978-1982.
[Source: www.nusports.com.]

Northwestern set a then-NCAA Division I record of 29 consecutive losses on 11/7/1981 in a 61-0 loss to Michigan State. Fans had worn "Stop State at 28" pins to the game, and when the game was over, the fans (mostly students) tore down the goal posts and carried them out of the stadium and headed east down Central Street to the shores of Lake Michigan, where they dumped the goal posts in the lake. Northwestern extended that record to 34 consecutive losses before beating Northern Illinois University 31-6 on 9/25/1982.
