Michigan football has second-longest home winning streak in FBS

The Michigan Wolverines have won 12 straight games at The Big House, a number that now ranks second in the FBS.

Following LSU's home loss to Alabama over the weekend, Brady Hoke and the Michigan Wolverines currently own the second-longest home winning streak at 12 games, as noted by Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com.

The Wolverines have yet to lose a single home game in the Hoke era, and have handed losses to Notre Dame, Ohio State, Nebraska and Michigan State over the 12-game span. Hoke's team is still scheduled to play two more games in Ann Arbor before the 2012 campaign concludes however, as a Nov. 10 date with Northwestern and a Nov. 17 game with Iowa each loom large.

Michigan dropped 11 games on its home field with Rich Rodriguez at the helm from 2008-10, although Hoke's brief tenure has immediately helped the program bring back its unmistakable home field advantage. The Wolverines face a stout test with a dangerous Northwestern team this weekend, but may have a great chance to own the longest streak in America with Northern Illinois set to host on a nationally-ranked Toledo squad on Nov. 14.
