Ohio State Buckeyes National Champions

National Champions on and off the field

Ohio State’s football team overcame a significant amount of adversity to earn its eighth national championship by defeating Oregon 42-20 in the inaugural college football championship.

The 2002 football champions showed their support before the game, and Ohio State fans demonstrated their passion for the university by defeating Oregon fans in the Bucks vs. Ducks Giving Challenge.

The victory buoyed the university community and provided another example of how being a Buckeye and achieving success go hand in hand. It has brought more attention to the ways Ohio State is winning championships in the classroom as well.

The university will celebrate the football championship with a free event at Ohio Stadium on January 24.

Ohio State’s campus is a sight to see at any time of the year, but it takes on an extra special look when covered with a light coat of snow. The Columbus campus had its first snowfall and photographers were there to chronicle the beauty.
