The last time the Buckeyes had a nine-game regular season in football they made history.
After going undefeated through the 1970 regular season, including a close 10-7 win over Purdue and beatdown of That Team Up North, Ohio State sealed the Big Ten Conference and booked a trip to the Rose Bowl against the Stanford Indians. Oh, and before they even took the field for the Rose Bowl, they were already named National Champions by the National Football Foundation—the sixth national title in the school’s history and fifth and final under legendary coach Woody Hayes. The system quirk of naming national champions before bowl games at the time dramatically benefited the Buckeyes, as the team suffered a 17-27 upset at the hands of major underdog Stanford in the Rose Bowl.
