OSU Schedule

Bowling Green
@Oregon
Buffalo
Rutgers
BYE
Iowa
@MSU
@PSU
Nebraska
Indiana
@Maryland
@Illinois
Michigan

Don't love having the bye that early.  At Penn State is always a problem.  Interested to see what Oregon looks like with Herbert leaving.

That Oregon game out West early could be tricky. 

The four game stretch coming out of the off week could be rough as well:

  • Iowa
  • @MSU
  • @PSU
  • UNL
I do like that PSU and M are not back-to-back immediately proceeding another potential tough game in Indy.

Much better Duck teams have been absolutely curb stomped by much worse Buckeye squads.

When?

I double checked and according to my go-to source:
  • Woody's team beat them in the 1958 Rose Bowl ('57 season, for a tOSU NC).
  • Woody's teams beat them four more times in the 1960's (three in Columbus, one in Eugene).
  • Earl Bruce's teams beat them a couple times in the 1980's (both in Columbus).
  • Tressel's team beat them in the 2010 Rose Bowl (2009 season).
  • Urban's team beat them in the inaugural CFP CG at Jerry-world in 2015 (2014 season).

That makes 9-0:
  • 5-0 in Columbus, Ohio
  • 2-0 in Pasadena, California 
  • 1-0 in Eugene, Oregon 
  • 1-0 in Arlington, Texas

I think something must have been lost in translation, since your data supports my message 100%.

They don't scare me at all.

None of those Duck teams that OSU beat in the regular season went on to win the Rose Bowl.

Season
2014: OSU 42, UO 20 in the CFP NCG
2009: OSU 26, UO 17 in the Rose Bowl
1987: OSU 24, UO 14 in Columbus
1983: OSU 31, UO 6 in Columbus
1968: OSU 21, UO 6 in Columbus
1967: OSU 30, UO 0 in Eugene
1962: OSU 26, UO 7 in Columbus
1961: OSU 22, UO 12 in Columbus
1957: OSU 10, UO 7 in the Rose Bowl

In recent times, the Ducks are tough to beat in Eugene.  OU curb-stomped them 68-3 in Norman in 1972.  That OU team finished 11-1, beating Penn State in the Sugar Bowl, while the Ducks finished 4-7.  OU upset the highly favored Ducks 17-14 in the 2005 Holiday Bowl.  But, in the most blatantly stolen game that I have ever watched, the Ducks won 33-32 in Eugene in 2006.  OU went on to win the Big 12 (despite losing to Texas) then lose to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl, while Oregon finished 7-6 with a loss to BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl.

I don't think that Ohio State can go into Eugene and win on the basis of a 9-0 all-time record vs. the Ducks.  Those Pac-12 zebras are still waiting to kick you in the teeth!

Yes, Oregon is all flash and no smash. Even in their hey day they couldn't hang with the Buckeyes. In the meantime OSU has gotten quite a bit better, while Oregon has regressed.

I thought the Oregon team we saw in the Rose bowl was much more physical than their teams of the past.

Blount was pretty physical. He missed most of that season for sucker punching a Boise player.
