On the season, Ohio State currently holds a record of 4-1.
The lone loss was against Virginia Tech and it was the first time since before the millennium generation was even born that Ohio State lost to a unranked non-conference at home.
However in their four wins they have looked very good.
They beat Navy 34-17 in week one. In week three the Buckeyes beat Kent State 66-0.
In week four they beat Cincinnati 50-28 and in week five they opened up their Big Ten Conference Schedule with a win over Maryland 52-24.
The next three games are all winnable. First they take on Rutgers at home after a week off.
Then they travel to Penn State. After that they come back home for a struggling Illinois team. Then, the big one.
The one everyone has circled on their schedule. On Nov. 8 Ohio State will travel to Michigan State to take on the Spartans.
After the Spartans game they travel to Minnesota before coming home for the final two games of the season against Iowa, and Michigan.
The Ohio State-Michigan game is one of the oldest and most tradition-rich rivalries in college football.
Speaking of tradition, Ohio State is one of the most storied teams in college football history.
In total, Ohio State has 36 conference championships, 10 undefeated seasons, and seven national championships to their name.
Ohio State has produced nine players- who are in the NFL hall of fame. The college football hall of famers and All-Americans are too many to count.
The Ohio State Buckeyes had maybe the most unusual road to a national championship in recent memory of any team in college football. The Buckeyes lost starting quarterback Braxton Miller to a season ending injury prior to the start of last season and turned to freshman J.T. Barrett. After an embarrassing early season loss at home to Virginia Tech 35-21, the Buckeyes were written off by many, especially without their quarterback, as national championship contenders. But strange things began to happen. National championship favorites around the nation began to falter and Ohio State ran off 10 wins in a row, leading them to the Big Ten Championship game against Wisconsin. The Buckeyes shocked the world that night, entering the game as 4.5 point underdogs to Wisconsin in the spread.
The Buckeyes defeated the Badgers 59-0 in one of the biggest shockers in college football history. However, the game wasn't without a loss in it's own way, as Ohio State lost J.T. Barrett to injury. Ohio State then turned to their third quarterback, sophomore Cardale Jones, who had a miracle run during the inaugural college football playoffs leading Ohio State to the national championship.
Jones returns as the starter in 2015, although expect J.T. Barrett to get snaps as well. Former starter Braxton Miller is switching to wide receiver. In week one of the regular season Ohio State will get a chance at revenge against Virginia Tech on the road. After that the Buckeyes biggest test of 2015 will be the home game against Michigan State on Nov. 21, a game in which many are predicting will determine the winner of the Big Ten East.
