The year is 1890, life is…simple….George Cole and Alexander Lilly introduced college football to Ohio University. From 1890-1901 Ohio was a football independent and then in 1902 they joined the Ohio Athletic Conference where they won two conference championships!! Thats pretty impressive for a new team.
Fast forward to 1912 , a big step…Ohio U are now members of the Big Ten Conference!
The Buckeyes have a pretty impressive, lengthy record including:
8 National Championships…yeah thats right..8!!
37 conference championships
5 division championships
10 undefeated seasons
6 perfect seasons of having no losses and NO ties
Being the football that I am, Im super impressed by those stats.
The Ohio stadium was built in 1922 and has seating capacity of 104,944 and the surface of the field is Turf, its a great place for opossums which are very curious creatures, What do Opossums Eat? Whatever they can!
In 1942 Ohio won their first national championship.
