Co-Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day served as interim coach and led the Buckeyes to a start. Meyer returned to the sidelines and coached the team to four more victories before the team suffered a loss on October 20 to Purdue, The Buckeyes won their last four games of the regular season, including a win over archival Michigan, in Columbus.

On December 4, , the university announced that Meyer would retire after the Rose Bowl and be replaced by co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day.

Ohio State has won a championship in the Big Ten 37 times, second most in the conference and third most conference titles of any school in any conference.

Since , Big Ten has moved to divisions to ultimately decide who would play for the conference championship. The divisions were known as Legends and Leaders from to In , the divisions were realigned geographically into East and West.

Ohio State football is rich in traditions. Begun in by head coach John Wilce , seniors on the team are recognized at the last practice of the season, either before the Michigan game or before departing Columbus to play in a bowl game , and hit the blocking sled a final time.

A gold miniature charm depicting a pair of football pants is given to all players and coaches following a victory over the Michigan Wolverines. The tradition began as the result of a comment to reporters by newly hired head coach Francis Schmidt on March 2, "How about Michigan?

They put their pants on one leg at a time, the same as we do! The event began when local businessman Walter Jeffrey invited twenty former captains to the Scioto Country Club to honor them, and continues to welcome new captains and award them mugs bearing their names and season.

Begun in , each player who wins "first-team All-America " honors is recognized by the planting of a buckeye tree and installation of a plaque in Buckeye Grove, now located near the southwestern corner of Ohio Stadium next to Morrill Tower.

Trees are planted in ceremonies held prior to the Spring Game. All Buckeye All-Americans dating back to have been so honored.

Since the annual game against Michigan known as "that team up north" for Ohio State fans has been the final meeting of the regular season for both teams.

The week prior to "The Game", known as Michigan Week, is characterized by scheduled school spirit and public service events, such as rallies, touch football games, and blood drives ; [53] and by massive displays of school colors and banners in much of Ohio.

In an unofficial culmination to Michigan Week, since on the Thursday night before "The Game" students have participated in the "Mirror Lake jump", an unofficial gathering at Mirror Lake, a pond between Pomerene Hall and The Oval , in which masses of students jump into the water.

Reputedly the ringing can be heard five miles away "on a calm day. Beginning in , Brutus Buckeye has appeared at all Ohio State football games as the live mascot of the Buckeyes.

In he was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame and is now one of the most recognized mascots in the United States. First played at the Illinois game of October 9, , the rock song Hang on Sloopy is now played by the marching band before the start of the fourth quarter, with fans performing an O-H-I-O chant in the intervals between the refrains.

The song is also played to encourage the team's defensive players when opponents are moving the ball on offense late in a game. Since , the helmets of Ohio State players have been adorned with white decals approximately the size of a quarter depicting a buckeye leaf , awarded for making significant plays and for consistency of performance.

Most believe that this practice began in when the Buckeyes switched to their present Silver Helmet design since the decals have become identified with that helmet.

The tradition is thought to bring good luck to the football team for the game. With most of the student body leaving campus for the holiday, the jump has since occurred on the Tuesday of Michigan Week.

The Tunnel of Pride began with the Michigan game when all former players who were in attendance formed a tunnel through which the team ran to take the field, and Ohio State beat its rival that day, 22—6.

Rex Kern , quarterback of the National Championship team, and then Director of Athletics Andy Geiger together used the concept as a means of connecting current Buckeyes with those who played before them.

In each home game against Michigan since, the tradition has been repeated. Instituted by Coach Tressel in , at the conclusion of all home games the coaches, players and cheerleaders gather in the south end zone next to the marching band to sing the university's alma mater, Carmen Ohio , to the student section.

Tressel brought to the Buckeye football program two pre-game traditions he developed at Youngstown State. Prior to its warmup routine before every football game, the team exits the locker room as a unit in a controlled manner, linked arm-in-arm in a group known as "The Hive".

After warmups the team returns to the locker room, and when it next appears, runs onto the field and forms a circle of players around the strength coach, then they go through their warmup routine.

While its rivalry with the University of Michigan is its most renowned and intense, Ohio State has two other series marked by their longevity, both Big Ten Conference rivals, those of Indiana and Illinois.

The series versus Indiana began as a non-conference matchup, with Indiana going undefeated at 4—0—1. In conference, however, the Buckeyes despite losing the opening conference game are 70—8—4 through the season, the most wins against any opponent.

Illinois also began with non-conference games 0—1—1 but became the longest continuous series in when the schools played in their 89th consecutive year that record was tied by Michigan in Through Ohio State's record against the Illini is 66—30—4.

In , Ohio State was given their only defeat of the regular season by the Illini. When Penn State was added to the conference football play in , every member was given two designated rivals, teams to be played every year, with the other conference teams rotated out of the schedule at regular intervals.

For geographic convenience, the Big Ten named Penn State as Ohio State's new designated rival in addition to Michigan, and Illinois was set to be paired with in-state rival Northwestern and neighboring Indiana, and in doing so undermined Ohio State's historical rivalry with Illinois.

With Nebraska's entry to the Big Ten and the establishment of division play in football, Ohio State and Illinois played every season in the Leaders Division from to Michigan was the Buckeyes' permanent cross-division rival from the Legends Division.

With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers to the Big Ten, Ohio State and Illinois will be in separate divisions and will no longer meet every year. Ohio State and Michigan also became East Division rivals.

The Buckeyes have had 24 head coaches in their year history. Of the team's eight national championships to date, Woody Hayes won five. This table reflects the results of Big Ten match-ups when both OSU and its opponent were members of the conference.

Ohio State began Big Ten play in Examples of excluded results are Chicago after , Michigan between —, Michigan State before , Penn State before , and Nebraska before see Big Ten History for further information.

Ohio State players have won 34 of the listed major awards, with the next closest being 26 Oklahoma. Ohio State is the only university to have received each of the awards at least once.

Note - 10 and all future numbers are to be considered enshrined rather than retired, and will still be available to be worn.

Smith employed numerous revolutionary architectural techniques while building the stadium. At the base is a slurry wall to keep out the waters from the Olentangy River ; the stadium sets on the flood plain.

Instead of building a large bowl like the previously constructed Yale Bowl , Ohio Stadium was designed to have an upper deck that would hang over part of the lower deck, giving Ohio Stadium its "A", "B", and "C" decks.

Instead of employing numerous columns like those at Harvard Stadium , Smith designed double columns that allow for more space between columns.

The rotunda at the north end of the stadium, which is now adorned with stained glass murals of the offensive and defensive squads that comprise the Buckeye football team, [4] was designed to look like the dome at the Pantheon in Rome.

The first game in the stadium was against Ohio Wesleyan University on October 7, , and brought a crowd of around 25,, which left people concerned because the stadium was half empty. This concern was put to rest at the stadium's formal dedication against Michigan on October 21, which the Wolverines won, 19—0.

The crowd was announced at the game to be 72,, but no one is really sure how many people made it into the stadium. This attendance mark was broken in a game against Michigan in when 90, came out to support the Buckeyes; this is also the last time standing-room-only tickets were sold for a game.

The stadium did not regularly sell out until after World War II, and in the s and s most games only drew in 20, or 30, fans with many more attending the annual game against Michigan.

The contest with Notre Dame was a sellout, with over 81, in attendance. In , a cinder track was built around the football field, which would later be named after Olympian and Ohio State athlete Jesse Owens.

As time passed, minor adjustments raised the seating capacity to more than 90, The stadium was heavily renovated from to The press box was replaced, additional seating was installed, and 81 luxury suites and 2, club seats were added.

Additionally, a smaller version of the south end scoreboard was added to the north end and a new LED ribbon board that runs end-zone to end-zone was added to the balcony prior to the season.

After the season, the field of play was lowered to add seating closer to the field. However, the south end of the stadium remains partially open, thus allowing the stadium to maintain its notable horseshoe configuration.

No public or university money was spent in the renovation process. In , the natural grass field was removed, and AstroTurf was installed, compliments of a donation by Lou Fisher in dedication to fellow football player Joseph Campanella.

A plaque was placed on the southeast corner in memory of Campanella. In , the surface was replaced with SuperTurf.

In , natural grass made its return to the Horseshoe, in the form of a special grass called "Prescription Athletic Turf. During the season, problems with the natural grass began to arise.

After serious damage to the field during use in the spring of , the field never recovered and had to be re-sodded. That grass never took root because of bad weather, and the university was forced to re-sod the field again only three weeks after the old sod was laid.

This new artificial turf looks and feels like real grass but requires minimal upkeep. The project began April 23 and was completed in time for the season opener on September 1.

The current scoreboard includes a Panasonic HD screen, stretching feet by 42 feet, and incorporates upgrades to the audio system and the LED running boards which are the smaller screens underneath the larger screen that usually display score updates and advertisements.

A Pro Sound audio system with 25 different speakers flank the scoreboard. Older speakers throughout the Horseshoe received improvements and will eventually be replaced by new speakers fitted into the existing framework.

Prior to the season, 2, seats were added to the south stands. These seats were built over the entrance tunnels and raised the official capacity of the stadium to ,, making it the third largest stadium in the country and the fourth largest stadium in the world.

The renovations also included permanent lights added to the northeast and southeast corners of the stadium, as well as atop the press box, and the playing surface was replaced. Before the renovations, Ohio Stadium did not have permanent lights at the stadium, thus night games were rare.

Ohio State's first night game in the stadium was played on September 14, , when the 9 Buckeyes defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers , Ohio State did not play another night game at Ohio Stadium until September 11, , when the 16th-ranked Buckeyes defeated 12 Washington Ohio State played a total of 12 more night games before permanent lighting was installed, nine of which were against ranked opponents.

The Buckeyes are Ohio State's most recent night game was a loss versus 5 Oklahoma on September 9, The largest crowd in stadium history is ,, set November 26, , in a game against Michigan. The attendance broke the previous record of , set the previous year for the game against Michigan State.

Ohio State has ranked in the top five for attendance for many years, and was the national leader in attendance for the season, averaging , people per game. This broke the previous record of 99, set by the Buckeyes in their spring game.

Mel Kiper, Jr. University of Iowa coach Hayden Fry complained after a loss that the fans were too loud for his quarterback, Chuck Long , to call plays and suggested sound meters be used to gauge the noise level, penalizing home teams if there was too much noise.

He said, "It's a realistic fact that happened. He became mentally disturbed for the first time since he's been a starter for us because of his inability to communicate. The chant loops around the stadium loudly sometimes for 5 to 10 minutes.

Before kick off the entire stadium screams O continuously until the ball is kicked, immediately following the kick the stadium shouts in unison O-H-I-O.

Major League Soccer games were held at Ohio Stadium between and The home opener was held on April 13, , against D. United before 25, fans. Brian McBride scored 2 goals and had an assist in a 4—0 rout.

The field at Ohio Stadium was the smallest in the MLS, measuring only 62 yards wide by yards long, limited by the track surrounding it. Attendance stayed strong through the first season, seeing a record audience of 31, September 15, win over the MetroStars , 2—0.

Jamey Rootes , Crew president and general manager stated, "We prefer a smaller, more intimate environment than Ohio Stadium … We've got to create a major league environment.

Ohio Stadium is a great stadium, but we cannot create a major league environment in a facility that is way too big for us. The stadium hosted the Ohio High School Athletic Association football championship games for all seven divisions in and The match, won by Paris Saint-Germain 3—1, drew 86, fans, the largest crowd to ever see a soccer game in the state of Ohio.

where is ohio state playing

The Buckeyes returned to the Rose Bowl to be upset by Stanford 27— The "super sophomores" had garnered a record of 27—2, the best winning percentage of any three-year period in team history, and won or shared the Big Ten title all three years.

Archie Griffin began his college football career in , taking advantage of new NCAA eligibility rules that allowed freshmen to compete at the varsity level.

The following season Hayes installed an I-formation attack with Griffin at tailback and fellow sophomore Cornelius Greene at quarterback. The Buckeyes went undefeated with a powerful offense and equally impenetrable defense, achieving an average margin of victory of 31 points a game.

The only blemish on their record was a 10—10 tie with Michigan after both teams had entered the game unbeaten. Despite soundly defeating defending national champion USC , however, the tie with Michigan resulted in the Buckeyes finishing second to Notre Dame in the final AP rankings.

The Buckeyes twice more defeated Michigan and went to two Rose Bowls, but lost both. The team seemed bound for another national championship when it was derailed by a loss to unranked Michigan State Ohio State lost only twice in the regular season during Griffin's 4-year career, both to the Spartans , and the next year the 1-ranked Bucks lost 23—10 to 11th-ranked UCLA in the Rose Bowl.

In all the Buckeyes were 40—5—1 from —75, winning the Big Ten all four years and never losing to Michigan, but each loss and the tie were crucial in failing to win another championship.

The falloff in success of Hayes' last three years was not great. His teams forged records of 9—2—1, 9—3, and 7—4—1, and made bowl appearances in all three years the rules had changed to allow appearances in other than the Rose Bowl.

However frustrations in losing three straight years to Michigan, and other factors, resulted in growing criticism of Hayes and his methods, particularly his on-the-field fits of temper.

Even so, his downfall was sudden and shocking when near the end of the nationally televised Gator Bowl , Hayes punched Clemson middle guard Charlie Bauman after Bauman intercepted a pass to kill Ohio State's last chance to win.

Bruce inherited a strong team led by sophomore quarterback Art Schlichter but that had also lost eleven starters, and the squad exceeded pre-season expectations, ending the 3-year loss drought against Michigan and going to the Rose Bowl with an opportunity once again to be national champions.

The Buckeyes lost both by a single point, 17—16, but Bruce was named Coach of the Year. His success was hailed by those in the media who saw it as a rebuke of Hayes and the start of a "new era". Though each of these seasons, and the 10—3 season that followed them, culminated in a bowl game, Ohio State did not appear to be any closer to a national championship than during the end of the Hayes era.

Bruce's teams were not without impact players, however. The team was selected as the top-ranked team of the pre-season AP poll and opened the season with four games at home, but were shocked in the fourth game by UCLA, shut out 17—0.

The team rebounded to win its next six easily, but then were shut down by a ball-control Michigan team that allowed the Buckeyes only 23 minutes with the ball, then lost again to Penn State in the Fiesta Bowl.

In , Ohio State opened strong, including a victory at Stanford in which senior Art Schlichter out-dueled John Elway , but then lost back-to-back games to Florida State and Wisconsin their first victory over the Buckeyes in 22 games.

The Buckeyes continued to struggle on defense, losing a third time, at Minnesota. Victories over Michigan to gain a share of the Big Ten championship and over Navy in the Liberty Bowl salvaged the season.

For the first time since the Buckeyes lost three in a row in Ohio Stadium in , including rematches with Stanford and Florida State, and for the second year in a row to Wisconsin, but then won seven straight, the last over BYU in the Holiday Bowl.

Sophomore running back Keith Byars had a stand-out season in , rushing for 1, yards, and Ohio State defeated the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman , but three losses in conference meant a 4th-place finish.

Ohio State also defeated Michigan to win an outright Big Ten championship. Byars led the nation in rushing and scoring but finished second in Heisman balloting. Byars broke his toe just prior to the start of the season, ending his Heisman hopes and seriously handicapping the Buckeye attack.

He returned against Purdue with Ohio State at 4—1 and scored twice, but then re-injured his foot the next week against Minnesota.

Iowa was top-ranked nationally when they came into Ohio Stadium favored to end the longest home winning streak in the country, and were the first 1 team the Buckeyes faced since Purdue in Ohio State's defense dominated with four interceptions to win 22— In Bruce received a 3-year contract, the first for the modern program but the team opened with two losses, which had not occurred in over 90 years.

The Buckeyes then won 9 in a row before Michigan took a close game when kicker Matt Frantz missed a field goal with a minute to play. After the season Bruce was offered the position of head coach at the University of Arizona with a 5-year contract but was persuaded to stay at his alma mater by Athletic Director Rick Bay.

Hopes for a standout season in suffered a serious setback when All-American wide receiver Cris Carter was dropped from the team for signing with an agent. Indiana defeated Ohio State for the first time since , 31—10, in a game that came to be known as the "darkest day", and Ohio State lost three conference games in a row going into the Michigan game.

On the Monday of Michigan week, after a weekend of rumors and speculation, Ohio State President Edward Jennings fired Bruce but tried to keep the dismissal secret until after the end of the season.

Bay, who had been instrumental in keeping Bruce at Ohio State, disregarded Jennings' orders and announced the firing and his own resignation in protest. Jennings made his own situation worse by refusing to give a reason for the firing and the circumstances have been the subject of controversy since.

John Cooper was hired as the 21st football head coach at Ohio State before the end of and before he had coached his last game at Arizona State University.

Cooper's coaching record at ASU and at Tulsa prior to that stood out among his credentials, as did a victory over Michigan in the Rose Bowl. Cooper's thirteen years as Buckeye head coach are largely remembered in the litany of negative statistics associated with him: a notorious 2—10—1 record against Michigan, a 3—8 record in bowl games, a 5-year losing streak to Illinois to start his term and a 6—7 record overall, and blowing a point 3rd quarter lead in a 28—24 loss to unranked Michigan State when the Buckeyes were the top-ranked team in the nation and en route to a national championship.

However his record also has many positives: back-to-back victories over Notre Dame, two finishes second-ranked in the polls, and three Big Ten championships albeit shared.

Cooper also recruited 15 players who were first-round draft picks in the National Football League. Both and began identically: an impressive season-opening win followed by an embarrassing loss to a highly regarded team Pitt and USC ; a rebound win against two other highly regarded programs LSU and Boston College followed by a loss to Illinois in the conference opener.

However saw Ohio State lose its first three conference games and a close game at home against Michigan for a 4—6—1 record, its first losing season in 22 years.

In the Buckeyes won 6 consecutive Big Ten games before losing its last two to go 8—4. The most noteworthy victory occurred in Minneapolis when Ohio State overcame a 31—0 deficit to Minnesota to win 41— Persistent rumors that Cooper would resign or be fired were laid to rest when University President Gordon Gee announced he would be back in The next 6 seasons were very successful, winning ten or more games in 5 of the 6 and sharing the conference championship in three.

Eddie George won the Heisman Trophy in after a tremendous senior season, Ohio State defeated Notre Dame in and , and won half its bowl games. But in three seasons , , and the Buckeyes entered the Michigan game undefeated, with the possibility of a national championship in at least one, and lost all three to underdog Wolverine teams.

Ohio State had won 62 games and lost only 12, but a third of those were to Michigan. After renewing his contract and becoming a member of the "million dollar coaching club", [26] Cooper started sophomore Austin Moherman against the Miami Hurricanes in the nationally televised Kickoff Classic and was soundly beaten.

That presaged a mediocre season in which the Buckeyes finished 6—6, ending their successful 90's run. The team was more successful, going 8—4, but criticism of Cooper among fans had risen to a clamor again and touched on many areas of the program beyond specific game records.

The negative publicity rose to a peak in the days leading up to Ohio State's matchup with South Carolina in the Outback Bowl , when wide receiver Reggie Germany was suspended for having a 0.

In January , Cooper was fired. His loss in the Outback Bowl to a team that had not even won a single game the year before was a factor in his subsequent firing, as was negative publicity regarding player behavior before and during the game.

Other contributing factors included the record against Michigan which was actually considered by most people to be the biggest reason for his firing , a reputation of inability to win "big games", the lack of a national championship, the perception of him as an outsider by many alumni, the poor bowl game record, and finally a perceived lack of discipline on the team.

Ohio State quickly sought a replacement for Cooper and after a nationwide search hired Jim Tressel. Although there were some doubts as to whether or not Tressel could repeat his earlier success at the Division 1A level, most fans and alumni met the coaching change with enthusiasm.

On the day of his hiring, Jim Tressel, speaking to fans and students at a Buckeye basketball game, made a prophetic implication that he would lead the Buckeyes to beat Michigan in Ann Arbor the following November.

Tressel's first season was difficult as the Buckeyes finished 7—5 all but one loss was by a touchdown or less , but he made good on his promise, beating Michigan in Ann Arbor.

While its fans were optimistic about the chance for success of the team, most observers were surprised by Ohio State's National Championship. The Buckeyes lost both by wide margins.

Terrelle Pryor was named MVP of the contest with 2 touchdown passes for a career-high passing yards. In addition, he had more total yards than the entire Oregon Ducks team. In December it was announced that five student-athletes on the football team would be suspended for the first five games of the season for NCAA violations.

The punishments stemmed from an incident when some of the Buckeye players received tattoos for their autographs, according to news reports. Other violations committed by the players included the selling of several items given to them by the University, such as Big Ten championship rings.

Ohio State ended up with an 0—1 record the lone loss from the Wisconsin Badgers for the season after vacating its wins for NCAA violations. On December 22, , the NCAA announced that five players would be suspended for the first five games of the season due to receiving improper benefits.

Mike Adams, Dan Herron , DeVier Posey, Solomon Thomas, and quarterback Terrelle Pryor were found to have signed autographs in return for tattoos, as well as selling memorabilia given to them by the university.

In addition, Jordan Whiting was suspended for the season opener for his involvement. The scandal originated at Fine Line Tattoos and Piercings in Columbus whose owner, Edward Rife, was being investigated for felony drug trafficking.

The Buckeyes finished the season 0—1, with their only official game being a loss to Wisconsin. Coach Tressel's suspension would later be increased to 5 games by the university.

On May 30, Jim Tressel resigned as head coach of the Buckeyes. On July 8, , Ohio State University decided to vacate all victories from the football season as self-imposed punishment for major NCAA violations.

His status is also changed from 'Resigned' to "Retired" in keeping with his wishes to "remain a Buckeye for life. Meyer's first season at Ohio State did not include a postseason contest, as the Buckeyes were sanctioned with a one-year bowl ban on December 20, The NCAA sanctions also included the loss of three scholarships each year for the following three years and three years' probation to end on December 19, Ohio State was required to vacate all wins from the season, the Big Ten Conference championship and their win in the Sugar Bowl.

The school's share of the Sugar Bowl proceeds were forfeited as well. In Meyer's first year, the Buckeyes went a perfect 12—0, winning the Big Ten Leaders Division , though the previously mentioned sanctions kept them from playing in the Big Ten Football Championship Game and a postseason bowl game.

On November 23, , the Buckeyes clinched their second straight Leaders Division Championship, after defeating Indiana 42— With the victory over Indiana, Ohio State set a team record for all-time consecutive wins, with The season for the Buckeyes began with a 10—0 start before losing on a last second field goal to Michigan State on November 21, ending the Buckeyes quest to repeat as National Champions.

However, the Buckeyes recovered their 2 next games with dominating wins over Michigan and then over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl to finish the season at 12—1.

The season started off great with 6 straight victories, including a win over the Oklahoma Sooners. That win streak came to an end as the team lost a heart-breaker to the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The Buckeyes would win the rest of their regular season games going Ohio State would then lose in the Fiesta Bowl to the Clemson Tigers in an embarrassing loss, ending the season The season started out on a high note with a victory over the Indiana Hoosiers, but the Buckeyes would then fall short to the Oklahoma Sooners the next week.

The Buckeyes would win the next 6 games of the season, including a win over a Penn State team that was ranked number 2 in the nation in a revenge game of sorts.

However, the Buckeyes suffered an embarrassing defeat against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Urban Meyer was suspended for the first three games of the season for mishandling domestic violence allegations against then-wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

Co-Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day served as interim coach and led the Buckeyes to a start. Meyer returned to the sidelines and coached the team to four more victories before the team suffered a loss on October 20 to Purdue, The Buckeyes won their last four games of the regular season, including a win over archival Michigan, in Columbus.

On December 4, , the university announced that Meyer would retire after the Rose Bowl and be replaced by co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day. Ohio State has won a championship in the Big Ten 37 times, second most in the conference and third most conference titles of any school in any conference.

Since , Big Ten has moved to divisions to ultimately decide who would play for the conference championship. The divisions were known as Legends and Leaders from to In , the divisions were realigned geographically into East and West.

Ohio State football is rich in traditions. Begun in by head coach John Wilce , seniors on the team are recognized at the last practice of the season, either before the Michigan game or before departing Columbus to play in a bowl game , and hit the blocking sled a final time.

A gold miniature charm depicting a pair of football pants is given to all players and coaches following a victory over the Michigan Wolverines.

The tradition began as the result of a comment to reporters by newly hired head coach Francis Schmidt on March 2, "How about Michigan?

They put their pants on one leg at a time, the same as we do! The event began when local businessman Walter Jeffrey invited twenty former captains to the Scioto Country Club to honor them, and continues to welcome new captains and award them mugs bearing their names and season.

Begun in , each player who wins "first-team All-America " honors is recognized by the planting of a buckeye tree and installation of a plaque in Buckeye Grove, now located near the southwestern corner of Ohio Stadium next to Morrill Tower.

Trees are planted in ceremonies held prior to the Spring Game. All Buckeye All-Americans dating back to have been so honored.

Since the annual game against Michigan known as "that team up north" for Ohio State fans has been the final meeting of the regular season for both teams.

The week prior to "The Game", known as Michigan Week, is characterized by scheduled school spirit and public service events, such as rallies, touch football games, and blood drives ; [53] and by massive displays of school colors and banners in much of Ohio.

In an unofficial culmination to Michigan Week, since on the Thursday night before "The Game" students have participated in the "Mirror Lake jump", an unofficial gathering at Mirror Lake, a pond between Pomerene Hall and The Oval , in which masses of students jump into the water.

Reputedly the ringing can be heard five miles away "on a calm day. Beginning in , Brutus Buckeye has appeared at all Ohio State football games as the live mascot of the Buckeyes. In he was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame and is now one of the most recognized mascots in the United States.

First played at the Illinois game of October 9, , the rock song Hang on Sloopy is now played by the marching band before the start of the fourth quarter, with fans performing an O-H-I-O chant in the intervals between the refrains.

The song is also played to encourage the team's defensive players when opponents are moving the ball on offense late in a game. Since , the helmets of Ohio State players have been adorned with white decals approximately the size of a quarter depicting a buckeye leaf , awarded for making significant plays and for consistency of performance.

Most believe that this practice began in when the Buckeyes switched to their present Silver Helmet design since the decals have become identified with that helmet. The tradition is thought to bring good luck to the football team for the game.

With most of the student body leaving campus for the holiday, the jump has since occurred on the Tuesday of Michigan Week. The Tunnel of Pride began with the Michigan game when all former players who were in attendance formed a tunnel through which the team ran to take the field, and Ohio State beat its rival that day, 22—6.

Rex Kern , quarterback of the National Championship team, and then Director of Athletics Andy Geiger together used the concept as a means of connecting current Buckeyes with those who played before them.

In each home game against Michigan since, the tradition has been repeated. Instituted by Coach Tressel in , at the conclusion of all home games the coaches, players and cheerleaders gather in the south end zone next to the marching band to sing the university's alma mater, Carmen Ohio , to the student section.

Tressel brought to the Buckeye football program two pre-game traditions he developed at Youngstown State. Prior to its warmup routine before every football game, the team exits the locker room as a unit in a controlled manner, linked arm-in-arm in a group known as "The Hive".

After warmups the team returns to the locker room, and when it next appears, runs onto the field and forms a circle of players around the strength coach, then they go through their warmup routine.

While its rivalry with the University of Michigan is its most renowned and intense, Ohio State has two other series marked by their longevity, both Big Ten Conference rivals, those of Indiana and Illinois.

The series versus Indiana began as a non-conference matchup, with Indiana going undefeated at 4—0—1. In conference, however, the Buckeyes despite losing the opening conference game are 70—8—4 through the season, the most wins against any opponent.

Illinois also began with non-conference games 0—1—1 but became the longest continuous series in when the schools played in their 89th consecutive year that record was tied by Michigan in Through Ohio State's record against the Illini is 66—30—4.

In , Ohio State was given their only defeat of the regular season by the Illini. When Penn State was added to the conference football play in , every member was given two designated rivals, teams to be played every year, with the other conference teams rotated out of the schedule at regular intervals.

For geographic convenience, the Big Ten named Penn State as Ohio State's new designated rival in addition to Michigan, and Illinois was set to be paired with in-state rival Northwestern and neighboring Indiana, and in doing so undermined Ohio State's historical rivalry with Illinois.

With Nebraska's entry to the Big Ten and the establishment of division play in football, Ohio State and Illinois played every season in the Leaders Division from to Michigan was the Buckeyes' permanent cross-division rival from the Legends Division.

With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers to the Big Ten, Ohio State and Illinois will be in separate divisions and will no longer meet every year. Ohio State and Michigan also became East Division rivals.

The Buckeyes have had 24 head coaches in their year history. Of the team's eight national championships to date, Woody Hayes won five.

This table reflects the results of Big Ten match-ups when both OSU and its opponent were members of the conference.

Ohio State began Big Ten play in Examples of excluded results are Chicago after , Michigan between —, Michigan State before , Penn State before , and Nebraska before see Big Ten History for further information.
