Not a lot of college football programs can claim to own "unbreakable" records. But the Oklahoma Sooners have one record that not likely to ever be broken.

Their 47 game winning streak, from 1953 to 1957, put the Sooners on the college football map under Bud Wilkinson. Two national titles in that span and three undefeated seasons helped the Sooners define college football in the 1950's.

To put into perspective how dominant the Sooners were for half a decade, take a look at every single game and score from that time span.

Sooner fans will always have the winning streak argument handy when arguing about tradition, as no team in recent history has even come close to 47 games. In fact, at the time of the winning streak, the Sooners already owned the record for most consecutive victories at 31 from a couple of years before that. They also own three of the top seven longest winning streaks in football. It's safe to say that the Sooners dynasty in the 1950's is one of the greatest in college football history thanks to the record and three national championships during the decade.
