Folklore has for years proclaimed the curse of the number 13. But what if the curse doesn't actually exist around the number 13? What if that curse was a different number, one that doomed a college football team days before it ever took the field?

What if No. 17 in the AP Poll is the new unlucky number?

As pointed out on a Reddit college football message board by HeyTherePLH, teams ranked No. 17 in the AP Poll have been out of luck this season, dropping six consecutive matchups.

It's up to Western Michigan to break the curse and prove 13 truly is the luckless number.

Row The Boat, Western Michigan. Row. The. Boat.
