List of college football coaches with 20 ties
This is a list of college football coaches with 20 career ties. College football coaches who have coached college teams to 20 or more tie games are included in the list. College football has since established "tiebreaking" rules—without a change in game rules, no new members will be added to this list and there are no leaders in the support advocating repeal of the tiebreaking rule.
"College level" is defined as a four-year college or university program in either the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics or the National Collegiate Athletic Association. If the team competed at a time before the official organization of either of the two groups but is generally accepted as a "college football program" it would also be included.
The coach with the longest tenure is Amos Alonzo Stagg, who coached for 55 seasons and 555 games. Coach Stagg and "Pop" Warner were the only two coaches to begin coaching before 1900. No coach on the list was active after the 1954 season. Butch Cowell has the shortest tenure of any coach on the list with 21 seasons.
Howard Hancock leads the list with the highest percentage or ratio of tie games to total games played at .144. A total of five coaches produced at least one tie game out of every ten games played. Amos Alonzo Stagg has the lowest ratio of tie games to total games at .063.
