You have to be an 113 year old TTUN fan to have a winning record against The Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio Against The World
Ikr. It's all time % against all opponents like all the high school teams ttun played for their first 24 years.

Thank you for pointing this out. I love knowing about all the ways we're ahead of TTUN.
In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 34, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 43, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-15, UM 10-16
Does this include our vacated games in 2009 bs? That's such a load of crap
Yep. But PSU got THEIR games back and all they did was... well... you know.

Yes. I'll have to find the article. We're closing in on all time W v L in the game too... Don't have those numbers handy.
OSU 922(934 with the 2010 wins)

True. But ttun lost more. It's the % we're eclipsing not total wins.
Here's hoping we get the W and the percentage... and the bragging rights that go with it.
Sounds good to me!

If OSU had the 12 vacated wins back from 2010 they would have a winning percentage of .732.
Also OSU is 40 wins behind Xichigan. Would be 28 wins if the vacated wins were given back.
Hope this clears up things.
My math is slightly different, but close. OSU has 53 ties, compared to Michigans 36. I don't like it, but each counts as a 1/2 win and a 1/2 loss. So basically 53 ties is the same as being 26.5-26.5. Officially OSU is 921-325 (which is .7391). UM is 961-345 (which is .7358), a huge advantage for OSU. Now, because of the ties, you have to add in OSU's 26.5 wins and 26.5 losses. UM would add in 18-18. So OSU is .7294, and UM is .7295, a statistical tie. By my math, OSU surpasses UM with a victory this week with a .7296, and UM's would drop a bit too of course.
If OSU gets the 12 wins back, the advantage would be much greater.

Either way. Ryan Day has a chance to make history this Saturday.
Anyone else have the official stats for this?
Done deal. Now we need just 7 more wins to lead the all time series. Should happen in 2026.
Can we take Out the wins over high school teams in the 1800s ttun counts?...
