    was pretty depressing sitting here trying to think of a standout, best I could do was to come up with awesome moments for UNC fans in completely meaningless games like Gio's punt return and Connor Barth knocking off Miami

    I’m going to interpret this as “most perfect” game and that would be the 2014 B1G championship against Wisconsin. I have never seen an OSU team play a better game.

    i would second this.

    "greatest" in a broader sense is really difficult to answer. in my lifetime, i would go:

    1. 2002 National Title over Miami: ended a 34 year title drought and a 34 game winning streak. OSU was a two touchdown underdog, and most experts thought it would get a lot uglier than that. program defining win that reestablished OSU as a national powerhouse
    2. 2002 Michigan: Probably a bit unconventional but this game was pure torture in the 90s. '93, '95, and '96 saw unbeaten OSU teams fall in the last game of the year. '95 and '96 were both monumental upsets, and '96 almost certainly spoiled a national championship (OSU/ASU would have been a 1 v. 2 Rose Bowl). OSU beat Michigan in 2001, but while cathartic, this was a low-stakes game that sent a 4-loss Buckeye team to the Outback Bowl. Any impact it had would have been totally erased by a loss in '02. In 2002 the stakes were as they had been in the nineties--an unbeaten OSU squad trying to finish off a perfect regular season against a spoiler Michigan team.
    3. 2014 Alabama: Would put Oregon higher, but this game was more dramatic and much more surprising. After the 59-0 win against Wisconsin in the conference title game, there was some reason for optimism, but Alabama was seemingly in a class by itself and OSU was still down two quarterbacks. And after falling behind 21-6, this seemed like a rewind of the '06 and '07 national title games. But a 36-7 run tilted the game and gave OSU its first official bowl win over an SEC opponent
    4. 2014 Oregon: Frankly, this probably should have been a 56-10 sort of game. OSU won by 22 despite going -4 in TO margin, and each turnover occurred in a bizarrely improbable fashion. but it's a national title, and that alone warrants inclusion.
    5. 1996 Arizona State: Might be #1 had it not been for the 13-9 loss to Michigan to finish off the regular season. Still, earliest memory of watching and comprehending a Buckeye game. And it came against an unbeaten top-ranked team. ASU made a living all year with dramatic, last-minute drives. They did the same in this game, with Plummer leading a late TD drive to give the Herms a 17-14 lead late in the 4th. But OSU, led by 10-year-old Joe Germaine, returned the favor, and with 20 seconds to go, Germaine hit a wide open David Boston in the end zone to give OSU the win.

    thank you. i will now take any questions you might have

    Most satisfying: 2006 National Title against the#Ohio State Buckeyes. Pundits talked for a month how it should have been a rematch vs Michigan and how we didn't deserve to be in the game. Then not only do we win, but win by 4 TDs in dominating fashion. Bonus points for it happening while I was a student at UF, so the post game celebration is something I'll never forget.

    I’ll always vote 2002

    I say this every time, but the 2003 Fiesta Bowl National tile game had more talent on the field than any game in NCAA history. 21/22 OSU starters were drafted by an NFL team. Miami had 10 first round picks.

    -No.1 v No. 2 for the title, both undefeated

    -Miami riding a 34 game winning streak

    -huge upset, double digit underdog

    -double overtime

    Seems like every school from the southeast is running the train on the #Ohio State Buckeyes .


    Impress your cocktail waitress with this fact: the buckeyes have never beaten a school from the state of South Carolina. Never beaten a school from the state of Florida either

    The '97 game in the Swamp is easily my #1 Gator game ever. Pregame fight, Spurrier bringing out the rotating QBs, Fred Taylors 4 TDs, the mock Chop the Swamp broke out in after the Dwayne Thomas pick, and the Seminoles title hopes crushed. Mick Hubert called it "an insane asylum in the Swamp" and it was.

    I know for most Gators, beating FSU down for the Natty tops all, BUT, for someone that grew up in Florida where people from Ohio constantly moved too and never shut up about how the sun rises and sets in fucking Ohio, the beat down of the Bucks was my favorite.
    I remember watching that OSU/Michigan game and all the "countdown to the Game of Century" BS and then realizing, oh shit, they don't have a good defense and neither does Michigan. I knew we would beat them and I had Bucktards giving me 14 points!
    I won over $500 and two handles of Captain Morgan that night and a satisfaction I yearned for all my life.
    (beating again in Basketball was just icing on the cake).
