The women's soccer team at Texas Tech, where I'm on the faculty, started the season with five consecutive shut-out wins (over Texas Christian, Texas State, Northwestern State, Rice, and Mississippi). With 90 minutes the standard duration for a soccer game, the Red Raiders had held their opponents scoreless for 450 minutes.

In a 2-0 loss to Notre Dame this afternoon, however, the Fighting Irish scored two quick goals approximately 24 minutes into the game (23:51 and 24:38; stats sheet). Thus, Texas Tech's shut-out streak is now over at 474 consecutive minutes. A game article from Texas Tech's athletic website is available here.
