COLUMBUS, Ohio – Akron comes to Ohio state hoping to end a 127-year, 20-day streak against the Buckeyes.
Ohio State is 7-1 all-time against its nemesis in Mid-American Conference State. The Zips’ only victory came in 1894 at Columbus, 12-6.
The teams played each year from 1891 to 1895 and then again until 2001. The Buckeyes have won the last three games by a combined score of 90-16.
Ohio State resumes the Big Ten conference next week at Rutgers. Favored by nearly 50 points at kick-off, the Buckeyes should have the opportunity to offer a few young players their first extended playing time.
