Breitbart Sports No. 1 Team of 2012 Wins 49th Straight, Title

In the debut section of Breitbart Sports at the beginning of 2013, we listed the Minnesota women's hockey team as the best college team in any sport. They were 20-0 at the time, and this week improved to 41-0 to claim the NCAA title. Combined with their eight wins to close out last season, the team now has the 47th longest known win streak in pro or Division I college sports. Here are the top 20 of all time we can identify from sources ranging from Wikipedia listings to the New York Times.
