West Virginia Holds The Longest Streak In the Nation for Football and Basketball Postseason Play

With Wisconsin not making the 2018 NCAA Tournament, West Virginia holds the longest streak in the nation for qualifying for both March Madness and a bowl game.

West Virginia has not missed a bowl game or March Madness since 2013. While that may not seem like a very long streak, it is the longest such streak in the nation.

If Baylor had made the NCAA Tournament, then they would be tied with West Virginia.

Hopefully the basketball team fares better this season than the football team did in their most recent bowl game. The Mountaineer football team, dealing with all sorts of injuries, lost to the Utah Utes in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, 3o-14.
