College football: Michigan jumps Notre Dame in school win percentage
Michigan hit a milestone Saturday when it capped a 49-10 beatdown of Penn State at Michigan Stadium. The 4-0 Wolverines have — for the time being, at least — dethroned Notre Dame as college football's all-time winningest program, a distinction the Irish have held since late 2013.
Though U-M has the most wins in college football history with 929, the Irish have held college football's all-time best win percentage for almost three years — until now. They fell 38-35 to Duke to drop to 1-3 on the season.
Michigan's all-time record is 929-331-36, a win percentage of .7307. Notre Dame's all-time record is 893-316-42, a win percentage of .7306.
So U-M now has the throne of program with the best winning percentage, no matter which way you look at it. Of course, that can change as soon as next week.
There's work to be done, including next Saturday, when No. 10 Wisconsin comes to Ann Arbor. The Badgers are sure to move up in the polls after dropping Michigan State 30-6 in East Lansing. Notre Dame, meanwhile, plays at Syracuse next Saturday.
