Although the UCLA Bruins only appear once on the list, they rank second with 30 consecutive home wins. They pulled off the feat between Sept. 22, 1996 and Nov. 1, 1998. UCLA went 22-2 in the 1997 season to top Virginia in the national championship. 

The Indiana Hoosiers come in at an outright No. 3 with 27 consecutive home wins. The streak started on Oct. 18, 1996 and came to a close on Sept.3, 1999. Indiana won the national championship in both 1998 and 1999, first topping Stanford 3-1, then Santa Clara 1-0.

Old Dominion marks a unique spot, as well, Even though Big Blue is tied for fifth place on the list, the team won consecutive games at home for exactly two years, between Nov. 23, 2002 and Nov. 23, 2004.
