So I got a little bored on my night off

Thanks to the BTN playing various bowl games with TSUN on Monday night, it led me to wonder if previous bowl results have shown a history of luck against certain conference more than others.

So let’s start with Ohio State and see where it goes from there.First a few rules for my poor, poor sanity and space for those of you reading this on the phone, all teams will be counted from their current conferences. This isn't just to arbitrarily add to tOSUs win total against certain conferences, but make sure they know exactly what they've gotten themselves into. Second, all redacted games will be counted. Third, mythical national championship games will be counted by host bowl and not as a separate entity.

Overall bowl record: 20-23

Longest win streak: 4 (‘49, ‘54, ‘57, ‘68; ‘02-’05)

Longest Losing streak: 4 (‘77-80, ‘89-’92)

Let's take a break here before getting to the breakdown by coach and consider this the TL;DR point. However, I’d say it’s surprising that the Buckeyes have such a huge problem with the state of Florida, while having so few games, but success in the state of Texas.
