Meyer has a career record 171-30. Only four of the losses have come in consecutive seasons to the same head coach, according to ESPN Stats and Info. As second-year head coach at Florida in 2006, the Gators lost to Tommy Tuberville and Auburn, 27-17, on the road. Despite the loss they still reached — and won — the BCS National Championship. A year later, Tuberville beat Meyer again, this time in Gainesville, 20-17.
Two years later, Nick Saban and Alabama beat Meyer and Florida, 32-13, in the SEC Championship Game on their way to a national championship. The Tide throttled the Gators the following year, 31-6, in Tuscaloosa.

And they haven't beat Ohio State in consecutive years since 1963-64.
