50 years ago, one of the greatest teams in Buckeye football history dominated its way to a perfect 10-0 season and a national championship.
That season, the Buckeyes averaged 32 points and 440 yards per game and the defense allowed just 15 points and 292 yards. Ohio State topped four top-20 teams and three top-five teams on its way to the title, beating No. 1 Purdue, No. 16 Michigan State, No. 4 Michigan and No. 2 USC.
Members of that legendary 1968 squad will be honored during the first half of Saturday's game against Minnesota for the 50th anniversary of their accomplishments. Before that happens, let's take a look back at some photographs from that memorable season.
