    5-5 Louisville 52-0
    4-6 East Carolina 63-7
    8-3 Miami 9-10 (Lost)
    10-1 Nebraska 18-14

    The winning points for Oklahoma came in the final 20 seconds
    of the Orange Bowl. It was the only time we were scored on in
    the 4th quarter that year.

    2016 (Colorado, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State, Iowa). Also lost a heartbreaker to Florida State in the Orange Bowl. 2018 could be even tougher with road games at MSU, Notre Dame and Ohio State. Home games against Penn State and Wisconsin. SMU had a really good offense and should be a tough test for the defense.

    Interesting.

    It's not all that well know, but all but 1 of the 11 starters of the
    Montana State
    1941 football team lost their lives in WWII.

    Considering we have played both teams in the championship game for the last 2 years straight it's hard to pick. But feel free to throw in some SEC scheduling remarks to make yourself feel better.

    Not sure which year, but am confident it was the one where we lost the most games.

    Here's a link with a brief story. 10 of 11 starters KIA and 14 of 15
    Seniors lost their lives in WWII.

    Scroll down to "1946" it discusses Montana State's return to football
    after being idle during the war. The 1946 team had one returner
    from the 1941 team.
