Active streaks of reaching the NCAA round-of-32(research courtesy of CollegeSoccer360.com ... updated prior to 2011 NCAAs; includes some seasons with field of fewer than 32 teams)

There were 10 teams in the country during the 2010 season that featured senior classes that advanced past the first round of the NCAAs in each of their four seasons (2007-10) ... in fact, six longrunning streaks of reaching the second round/round-of-32 continued in 2010 (see chart below; note that some of the earlier years included fields of fewer than 32 teams), with all of the teams listed below having qualified for the 2011 NCAAs.

29 – North Carolina  (1982-2010, reached round-of-32)
18 – Notre Dame  (1993-2010)
17 – Virginia  (1994-2010)
14 – UCLA  (1997-2010)
13 – Texas A&M  (1998-2010)
11 – Portland  (2000-10)
6 – Florida State  (2005-10)

5 – Oklahoma State  (2006-10) 
5 – Stanford  (2006-10)

Notes:
 Duke (6; 2003-08) and USC (4; 2005-08) both saw their streaks of reaching the NCAA second round come to an end in the 2009 first round – and Illinois had advanced to the NCAA second round (final-32) each of the previous five seasons (2004-08), but the Fighting Illini failed to qualify for the 2009 NCAAs. ... only nine teams that made the 2009 second round failed to reach the final-32 in 2010: BYU, UConn, San Diego, Georgia, Washington St., Rutgers, Central Michigan, LSU and Cal (teams in 2010 second round that were not in 2009 final-32: USC, Minnesota, USF, Hofstra, Georgetown, Marquette, Duke, UC Irvine and Ohio St.) ... one year earlier, exactly half of the teams that advanced to the 2009 second round had not reached the round-of-32 the previous season ('08): Wisconsin, Oregon St., BYU, UConn, Washington St., Penn St., Virginia Tech, LSU, Cal, South Carolina, Georgia, Dayton, San Diego St.,Santa Clara, Maryland and Central Michigan.
