the Buckeyes a Rose Bowl. In 1982 Ohio State was 7-1 and beat Michigan 24-14. The Wolverines went to Pasadena by virtue of their 8-1 conference record. For some reason Ohio State and Iowa played eight conference games that year and the other eight schools played nine.

They played nine for two or three years but more often it was eight.
