Ohio State wins eight straight.

Ohio State is in the midst of its most dominant stretch in the history of The Game

With a 56-27 win over Michigan on Saturday, the Buckeyes now have their longest winning streak in the history of the rivalry.

Previously, Ohio State's longest streak before the current one was seven games (though six officially, as the 2010 win was vacated) between the years 2004 and 2010 as Jim Tressel beat up on Lloyd Carr and Rich Rodriguez. Before then, Ohio State never won more than four games in a row.

Michigan still owns the longest winning streak in the history of the rivalry, winning nine straight games between the years 1901 and 1909. The Wolverines own an even longer unbeaten streak, not losing a game to the Buckeyes in the first 15 years of the rivalry, starting 13-0-2 in The Game between the years 1897 and 1918.

The Wolverines have not won consecutive games in the rivalry in nearly two decades, beating the Buckeyes in back-to-back years most recently in the 1999 and 2000 seasons.
