Ohio State trails Our Rivals 45-58-6 overall and is 20-31-4 at their place. However, since 1950 The Buckeyes lead the series 33-28-2.

Skip over the Streak Busters and Undefeated Seasons if you want to enter The Game blissfully unaware of That Team's propensity to destroy Ohio State's season.

Streak Busters

That Team has stopped Ohio State double-digit win streaks more than any other team. Three times Our Rival has ended winning streaks:

1967-69: 22-game win streak snapped.

1995: 11-game win streak snapped. 

1996: 10-game win streak snapped.

Hopefully 2013 will not be added to this list.

Undefeated Seasons Ruined by That Team:

1969: Ohio State was ranked No. 1 and 8-0.

1973: Ohio State was ranked No. 1 and 9-0.

1993: Ohio State was No. 5 and 10-0-1.

1995: Ohio State was No. 2 and 11-0.

Excellent work pulling together all of these stats Remy!  Hopefully in the next few years we'll get a little closer to evening the overall record.   It was really those first 15 games or so (when OSU was just starting to play football) and the Cooper era that put us behind the 8 ball. 
Can't wait for this weekend!  Sure am hoping that we get to our 46th win in the series!!
Go Bucks!!

That streak busting section just took things up a notch.

No _ercy.

Remy... doing some serious work.  Well done.

Love seeing those old programs.  I will love even more watching the Bucks pound Brady and the Donut gang into oblivion.  Go Bucks!

Aweso_e as usual Re_y.
The record for winning streak against TTUN is 9 by _innesota 9, 10 if you count the tie that was before the 9 win streak and go with non-losing streak. Just think a win and we are 0.500 the last 10 ga_es in AA.
Go Bucks!

I may not be able to outsmart too many people, but I can outwork 'em.

Re_y on point again!!! Although I could have sworn it was 45-56-6...oh well. Stellar work Remy - stellar!

I know home field tends to mean less in rivalry games between teams that are usually closely matched, but I would not have guessed it mattered this little. The .081 difference in winning percentage between home and away seems really narrow to me -- and I would not have guessed that the hole we dug 100 years ago has us still on the negative side of this rivalry in games at home.

Fantastic post Remy!
Now you just need to update it.
