1957 - North Carolina Tar Heels

Football News

Record: 32-0

Just a year later, the Tar Heels showed that the perfect season wasn’t just reserved for the West.

The Atlantic Coast Conference team had a distinctive New York flavor under coach Frank McGuire who filled the 13 man roster with 10 players from his native region.

A perfect 32 game run came close to coming unstuck on several occasions during the regular season – needing double over time on two occasions.

And in both their Final Four match ups they required triple overtime to see off Michigan State (74-70), and Wilt Chamberlains Kansas (54-53) in their own Municipal Auditorium.
