Ohio State Buckeyes Football Bowl History

The Ohio State Buckeyes are a staple in the College Football Top 25 as one of the true powerhouse programs in college football over the years. The 7-time National Champions are a member of the Big Ten having dominated the conference over the past several years, but along with the entire conference, have lost national respect due to poor performances in big games and bowl games against rival conferences including the SEC. This trend continued under Urban Meyer when the Buckeyes fell in the 2014 Orange Bowl to Clemson by a score of 40-35. As a member of the Big Ten, Ohio State is tied to the Rose Bowl game where they last appeared in 2010 when they defeated the Oregon Ducks 26-17.

Ohio State Bowl Record: 20-25

Ohio State BCS Bowl Record: 6-4

Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor led the Buckeyes to a 26-17 victory over Oregon in the 2010 Rose Bowl.
