When the Ohio State Buckeyes locked arms to sing “Carmen Ohio” this weekend, it was to celebrate a special milestone in program history.

With Saturday’s 52-3 victory over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, the Ohio State football program earned its 900th victory in program history, becoming only the second team to reach that plateau.

“Nine hundred wins in Ohio State football history – it’s humbling to be part of a tradition like that. To see our student section out there, to all the Buckeye Nation coming out to a game like this in the rain in the fourth quarter, the student section on both sides is going crazy, chanting and they're staying in there having a blast,” acting head coach Ryan Day said following the game. “Again, really honored to be representing such a great university and a great football tradition.”
