Ohio State’s football program reaches 900 wins

The win over Rutgers put the Buckeyes into elite company.

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Ohio State Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

With the win against Rutgers on Saturday, the Ohio State Buckeyes football program crossed into exclusive company, becoming the second program in FBS history to reach 900 wins. The Buckeyes are second in FBS wins, trailing only Michigan, who holds 944 wins.

It was a race to 900, as the Texas Longhorns are, literally, right behind OSU. However, the Week 1 loss to Maryland set the Tom Herman coached program back, enabling the Bucks to become the second FBS team to reach the mark. The Longhorns play for win No. 899 later Saturday against Tulsa.

Ohio State and Michigan won’t be the only FBS members to be in the 900-win club for long. Both Nebraska and Alabama are within eight wins of joining the club, too. A seven-win season in the inaugural year for Scott Frost will lift the Huskers into the group, and make them the third Big Ten program in the club. Eight wins will get ‘Bama there, which is almost a lock to happen.
