Note: This is an annual piece that runs every Thanksgiving.
Long before the NFL claimed Thanksgiving as its day to play football, Ohio State competed on Turkey Day during its inaugural season of 1890. In fact, the Buckeyes played 14 times on Thanksgiving between 1890 and 1912. All of the games were home games.
The Buckeyes' first Turkey Day game was during the inaugural season of 1890 against Kenyon, who won 18-10. The two schools played on Thanksgiving nine more times over the next 12 seasons with the Buckeyes winning the Thanksgiving series 6–3.
Ohio State's last Thanksgiving game was a 35-20 loss to Michigan State in 1912. The Buckeyes are 7–6–1 on this holiday and have outscored their opponents 191-178.
