In getting ready for Saturday I’ve been watching some reruns of The Game on ESPN Classic. In viewing the 2007 game, I saw something I completely forgot about: Ryan Mallett came in for some plays in the third quarter.
So...that means he was part of a losing effort against the Buckeyes in The Game and three years laters was part of a loss by Arkansas against the Buckeyes in the Sugar Bowl
Has there been any other opponent who has played for two different schools against Ohio State in such significant games and lost in both? (And, yes, I am painfully aware that the Sugar Bowl victory was vacated but, in my book, Arkansas and Mallett lost, plain and simple.)
