I used to rely on Buckdubbs and tornadomanatwork on YouTube but I think their channels got shut down or purged of all those videos, which sucks because that was the only way I could watch games like the 1988 LSU game or any of the bowl games. The only other route I've been able to go is buying them online. I've found a few on eBay.

I would be more than happy to purchase the full game if available. Is eBay the only option for that?
I've found the 2002 National Championship, 2007 and 2008 UF and LSU games, and several others on eBay. Full games.
As IBleed mentioned, this guy used to have a lot of them but only a few recent ones now. I think he said YouTube basically shut him down.
I’d also be curious. Being overseas, anything i can find online helps.
Count me in as curious. Also as someone who lives out of the country, I live my American life vicariously through the exploits of others online.

I think that the online video thing is drying up, but I do have over 400 OSU games on DVD.
I've been finding full OSU games on YouTube dating as far back as 2002 recently (unless they've been removed).
Yeah, it sucks that Youtube cracked down on all those folks who put the games on there. I mean, sharing a bowl game from 20 years ago is basically a victimless "crime". If the content owners would provide the games on Youtube or elsewhere, many of us would pay for them, so I'm not sure why they don't make them part of an on demand service or something. If they're going to enforce the copyrights, at least make the content available in some other form, don't just ban them from existence entirely.
YouTube? I'll be shocked of any entity other that tOSU got those yanked
A man got to have a code...
Oh, you’re absolutely right. It’s OSU and/or ESPN or whatever source network who are making it happen, but YouTube has to take them off the site ultimately.
Luckily, I catalogued all of the OSU victories that were online, before they were deleted.
Google is your friend
Awesome- great find, Brohio! What was your exact Google search syntax, if you don't mind me asking?
1. "Ohio State Penn State 2017 full game"
2. Click 'Video' tab in the Google header to narrow results to just videos
3. Click 'Tools' in the Google header
4. Click the 'Any Duration' drop down and select 'Long'
Huh... was not able to replicate that ("Ohio State Penn State 2017 full game" returned just one result from both my PC and phone).
But if I add "Bilibili" to my search, I'm able to get a bunch of full Ohio State games, including both the 2017 and 2018 Ohio State v Penn State matchups. Thanks again!
I wasn’t either. These searches with key words not as easy as they seem sometimes.
I too would like a source for the games. I have a lot of the games that I've recorded, but they are DRM'd and can't be moved to another place than on the HTPC where I saved them. I'd love to have full HD versions of some key games along the way, I love watching them again every now and again. Not the losing games though, only the winning ones :)
Shoot me an email to Woodylives69@yahoo.com and I'll send you a list of 400 OSU games on DVD, the last few years are in HD.
Not being a smartass but but why are you concerned with the advertisements and in between play nonsense? I'm very happy not having to deal with those and I think having those edited out is an advantage. I'm able to watch any game on you tube but they do cut ads and between play stuff.
If you have access to BTN you can get many of the Classic OSU games and record to a DVR but they are edited for ads between play and halftime garb most but there are some that run longer and include some of the between play talk , it depends on the recording.
I'm definitely not concerned with the commercials, but I do like to have the in-between the play coverage, especially in big games. I like to hear the commentators discuss the game, see players/coaches/fans celebrate good plays, and get a feel for the urgency of the players. Especially in key moments, the jump-cut nature of some of the edited games can take me out of the moment. While I could probably live without those things for a game against FAU or Miami of Ohio, they make all the difference in watching come from behind victories against a conference foe.
