Ohio State Football: Team Stats, Schedule 2017, News Preview

The Ohio State Buckeyes football team is a college football team that competes as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, representing The Ohio State University in the East Division of the Big Ten Conference. Ohio State has played their home games at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio since 1922.

The Buckeyes are recognized by the university and NCAA as having won eight national championships along with 37 conference championships (including 35 Big Ten titles), five division championships, 10 undefeated seasons, and six perfect seasons of having no losses or ties.

Football was introduced to the university by George Cole and Alexander S. Lilley in 1890. Ohio State was a football independent from 1890 to 1901 before joining the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) as a charter member in 1902. The Buckeyes won two conference championships while members of the OAC and in 1912 became members of the Big Ten Conference.

Ohio State won their first national championship in 1942 under head coach Paul Brown.

Following World War II, Ohio State saw sparse success on the football field with three separate coaches and in 1951 hired Woody Hayes to coach the team. Under Hayes, Ohio State won over 200 total games, 13 Big Ten championships and five national championships (1954, 1957, 1961, 1968 and 1970), and had four Rose Bowl wins in eight appearances. Following Hayes’ dismissal in 1978, Earle Bruce and later John Cooper coached the team to a combined seven conference championships between them. wiki
