Ohio State has never lost a game inside the state of Texas.
Following the Buckeyes' sluggish 24-7 suffocation of the USC Trojans in last night's Cotton Bowl, the program is a perfect 6-0 in the Lone Star State all-time.
It's not a big number, however it is notable as four of those six wins came against teams ranked in the top ten.

Against Texas schools overall, the Buckeyes are 22-4-2 against Baylor, Rice, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and TCU. Ohio State plays the Horned Frogs this September in AT&T Stadium. TCU lost the Big XII title game to Oklahoma 41-17 on that field earlier this month.
The two teams last met in 1969 and 1973, which unfortunately for TCU were two of the strongest Buckeye teams of the 20th century. Ohio State won those meetings by a combined score of 99-3.
Ohio State meets TCU on Sept 15 in what could very well be another clash of top 10 teams. The Buckeyes visit the Texas Longhorns in 2022 in the first meeting of a home-and-home series that concludes the following season.
