In 1980, Ohio State University’s football team, known as the ‘Buckeyes,’ took the field for the first time against Ohio Wesleyan University, a match in which they emerged winners. Since then, the Buckeyes have consistently delivered at the highest levels for their university.
The legacy of current and former Buckeyes extends beyond the college level, as most of the players have gone on to make a name for themselves in the NFL. The 2023/24 NFL season consists of 68 former Buckeyes.
Over the course of its history, the Ohio State Buckeyes have won 8 national championships and two conference championships while they were members of the OAC. In 1912, after a stellar performance, they became members of the big ten.
In recent times, C.J. Stroud, Kyle McCord, Miyan Williams, Master Teague, Jaxon Smith Njigba, and Garrett Wilson have all been instrumental in the enormous success that the Buckeyes’ have achieved.
