New Mexico State’s first season came in the late 1890’s but they have won only four conference championships. The Aggies also had a 57-year bowl drought. 

8.Kansas -649 Losses

Kansas has been the laughing stock of college football the last decade, and the last few years have made their losses climb quickly. 

6.Tulane -651 Losses

Tulane has turned their program around the last few years, but this was a team that had plenty of struggles during their early days. Tulane has 651 losses in its history.

6.Kansas State -651 Losses

Both D1 teams from Kansas are represented on this list. Kansas State currently has 651 losses in their career, but they hope in the next couple of years, Kansas will pass them on this list.

3.Rutgers -667 Losses

Rutgers hope they are turning around the direction of their program, but for a long time, they have really struggled. 

2.Northwestern -675 Losses

Northwestern’s first season was back in 1882 and they had a rich history early but starting in 1972 they have had all kinds of struggles.
